Graeme McDowell is on the threshold of doing something huge in the game but those who envision a Masters flutter on the pride of Portrush must save their cash for yet another day.
This is not just that the thirty-six year old does not believe that he could not win the green jacket, but as he confronts his 9th fight with the Augusta National with the pock tissue of earlier battles still tender, he is not getting his expectations up.
Having made just 3 cuts after 8 previous tours down Magnolia Lane, he told that he still loves this. He is just there with a huge smile on his face this week, just having some fun. He has got Hilton Head and San Antonio coming up after this one and this is possibly the least of his 3 scopes. But he is okay with that; he is accepting of that. He is just playing there with an open mind this week.
