KAVARNA, Bulgaria (AP) Graeme McDowell won the Volvo World Match Play Championship on Sunday, beating Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee 2 and 1 in the final at Thracian Cliffs.
McDowell won a year after losing the final to Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts at Finca Cortesin in Spain. The 2010 U.S. Open champion fought back from 2 down after four holes, pulled ahead of his 43-year-old opponent on the 14th hole and secured the victory at the 17th.
"It's been a nice day and nice to receive a great trophy," McDowell said. "We have talked all week about the prestige of this event and how many great champions have won this tournament, and it's just nice to add my name to that list of legends."
