McDowell would settle for 'fourth'

Nothing matters more to Graeme McDowell at the moment than trying to win the USPGA Championship at Kiawah Island this weekend.

But that does not stop him rating it the fourth of the four majors in terms of importance.

"There's no doubt it's firmly the fourth major, unfortunately," said the 2010 US Open champion. "It's tough - I guess it's right in the middle of such a busy stretch of the season."

He added: "We've just come off the US and the British (Opens) and looking towards the FedEx and the Ryder Cup. There's a lot of golf going on.

"It's very hard to be known as the fourth, but you have three (The Masters is the other) with such prestige and tradition."
