McDowell happy with form on eve of US Open defense

U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell says his game is ”firing on

all cylinders” as he prepares to defend his title, describing the

10-over 81 he shot at the Wales Open as an ”anomaly.”

McDowell, the Wales Open defending champion, improved by 10

strokes on his third-round score to finish at 3-over 287 at Celtic

Manor on Sunday.

The Northern Irishman says ”I’m not disturbed about my game in

any shape or form. Game is in good shape,” but acknowledges he

”lost the feel” in his swing on Saturday when he dropped from one

shot off the lead to 11 strokes back.

The U.S. Open will be staged at Washington’s Congressional

course from June 16-19.
