File-This Nov. 1, 2018, file photo shows Graeme McDowell, of Northern Ireland, watching his drive off the 12th tee during the third round of the RSM Classic golf tournament in St. Simons Island, Ga. "Getting my playing privileges was a huge goal this year. It's a goal I've never had before," McDowell said. "When you're in the top 50 in the world and you're playing WGCs and majors, it's amazing how the points and money toward your playing privileges just kind of come automatically. But all of a sudden when you're grinding, when you're asking for invites like I've been doing this year, I felt like I had this monkey on my back that I couldn't shake off." (AP Photo/Stephen B.

Two of the most significant shots Graeme McDowell has hit in his career were a 6-iron, for different reasons and on entirely different stages. The most famous was on the 16th hole at Celtic Manor in 2010 at Ryder Cup, which came down to the final match between McDowell and Hunter Mahan. McDowell...

Sergio Garcia, second from left and Matt Kuchar, right, discuss on the eighth hole what had happened on the seventh green, during the Dell Technologies Match Play Championship golf tournament, Saturday, March 30, 2019, in Austin, Texas. Garcia had an 8-foot putt to win the seventh hole and left it 4 inches short, a frustrating miss. Worse yet was what followed. Such a tap-in typically is conceded in the Dell Technologies Match Play, and the Spaniard walked up and casually rapped it left-handed. The ball spun around the cup, and he picked it up and walked off the green, assuming he remained 1 down through seven holes. One problem: Matt Kuchar never formally conceded the putt.
