McDowell finishes joint third

Graeme McDowell gave his Race to Dubai chances a boost at the rain-delayed Singapore Masters on Monday as he finished joint third.

The Northern Irishman was fourth on 12 under par when storms brought an end to play on Sunday, but he dropped a shot on his return to the course on Monday.

Birdies at 13 and 14 kept him in the hunt but he could not close the gap to Australian Adam Scott, who took the title on 17 under, three shots clear of Anders Hansen.

With current Race to Dubai leader Martin Kaymer only managing to finish 10th, McDowell cut the German's advantage on the European Tour's money list and he has the chance to gain further ground at the UBS Hong Kong Open this week.

Peter Lawrie shot a two-over-par 73 to finish in a tie for 25th on five under, while Michael Hoey posted the same final-round score to finish six shots further back.

Shane Lowry also posted a 73 to end the tournament on three over, the same score as Gareth Maybin, who closed out with a level-par 71.
