Historical Victory of Audemars Piguet Ambassador Graeme McDowell at US Open

by 22 June 2010

On June 20 , the Northern Irish 30 years-old, Graeme McDowell won his first Major Tournament and becomes the first European to win the US Open Championship since 1970. “This is one of the proudest and most emotional moments of my life“, he said. The final ranking was really closed, he won with only one point on the French Gregory Havret and two points on the South African Ernie Els.

Thanks this victory, he climbs to 13th in the Official World Golf Ranking and to second in the Ryder Cup standings.

Before his success in Wales two weeks ago, he was not even in the top 50 and was in danger of having to qualify for this tournament.

Graeme’s next scheduled event is the Alstom Open de France, which starts on July 1st.
