McDowell does the business
Last updated: 14th January 2013
Graeme McDowell held firm on Sunday to claim the World Golf Challenge title by three shots.
The Northern Irishman held a two-shot lead over Keegan Bradley heading into the final round and carded a 69 - the joint low round of the day - to ensure there was no late drama as he finished on 17-under.
Having managed just one birdie on the front nine, McDowell sprung to life on the closing nine, beginning with back-to-back birdies. A lone blemish in the form of a bogey at the 14th was quickly forgotten thanks to further birdies at the 16th and the 18th.
Bradley started well, notching up two early birdies before bogeys at eight and nine saw him take the turn on even par for the round. As such, three birdies on the back nine where not an adequate response to McDowell's late run.
The pair where some way clear of the remainder of the field, with Bo van Pelt in third on 10-under-par, four behind Bradley.
Tournament host, Tiger Woods, was a further shot back on nine-under where he was joined by Rickie Fowler and Jim Furyk.
Zach Johnson endured a final round to forget, with the American's round of 79 - which included three double-bogeys and three bogeys - saw him drop to five-over-par.
