McDowell surges into Wyndham contention


Graeme McDowell has moved into contention at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Northern Irishman fired a six-under-par round of 64 - a day which featured eight birdies and two bogeys - to move into a tie for sixth place ahead of the final round on Sunday.

The 2010 US Open champion is six shots off the pace being set by leader Kim Si-woo, with the Korean also carding a 64 on Saturday, which added to his remarkable 60 in the second round, left him clear on -18.

Si-woo is four shots ahead of second-placed Rafa Cabrera-Bello, with Luke Donald and the American pair of Kevin Na and Jim Furyk lying a strok further back.

Shane Lowry, who like McDowell, is hoping for a strong finish to the season to put him in Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke's thoughts as a potential pick for next month's showdown at Hazeltine, signed for a disappointing even-par 70 which leaves him on -5.

Another player who is desperately scrambling to be one of Clarke's three picks is Donald and the English player stated his course both on and off the course.

"I think I have the best record in European history as a player," he said after the third round.

"Obviously I'll bring a lot of experience.I need to win probably tomorrow and probably need to have a good chance to win (next week's event) Barclays to have a chance (of being picked by Clarke).

"It's been a slow season for me. t hasn't been consistent but I've been working extremely hard and it's nice to see some form coming into play."
