GMAC hopes victory is springboard for the year

Graeme McDowell's claimed his first title since 2015 with victory in the Corales Championship in the Dominican Republic.

McDowell carded five birdies and two bogeys in a closing 69 to finish 18 under par, a shot ahead of Canada's Mackenzie Hughes and American Chris Stroud.

The victory gives the Ulster man a two-year exemption on the P-G-A Tour and he's hoping to kick on for the rest of the season...
