Monty hails McDowell

European Ryder Cup winning captain Colin Montgomerie has hailed Graeme McDowell's birdie putt on the 17th hole and admitted that moment will live with him for "many, many years".

Super Mac's superb performance in the singles helped the Europeans clinch victory at Celtic Manor yesterday with the final day going down the last match for the first time in 19 years, US Open champion McDowell saw Europe over the finish line finishing 3&1 over Hunter Mahan sealed a 14½-13½ success.

"There were some superb victories with Luke Donald's victory down the last hole and of course G-Mac's.

"To hold him as 12th man, if you like, towards the end was a good decision by us all.

"He was the Wales Open champion on this golf course, he is the current US Open champion and he was put there for a reason because he can handle himself in that situation and by God he did.

"That birdie on the 16th will live in my memory and live in all our memories for many, many years to come." Best Blogger Tips
