WITB – Trusty putter leads McDowell to Saudi win

G Mac Witb 1

Graeme McDowell claimed his first European Tour victory in 2,037 days with the help of a fairly well worn short stick. 

The Northern Irishman ranked fifth in Strokes Gained: Putting using his Odyssey White Hot No.7 putter, which has been in his bag for more than a decade.
