Graeme McDowell has confirmed he is engaged to long-time girlfriend Kirstin Stape and will look to celebrate the match with a win at this week's European Tour season-ending Dubai World Championship.

McDowell said he used the spectacular setting of the 656-foot high helipad of the Burg Al Arab Hotel in Dubai to propose to the U.S.-born Stape two weeks ago.

The Northern Irishman said ''I did it properly, getting down on one knee and she was very shocked and had no idea what was going on.''

McDowell first met Stape when he contacted her Orlando interior design business to decorate his home and popped the question when in Dubai for a practice session before heading to the Australian Masters in Melbourne.
