Graeme McDowell grew up in Ireland and started playing golf when he was eight, while his uncle Uel Loughery, served as his coach. Graeme went to the Coleraine Academical Institution, and later studied engineering at the Queen’s University in Belfast, before moving to the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

McDowell turned professional in 2002 and immediately won at the Volvo Scandinavian Masters in Stockholm, Sweden, beating Trevor Immelman by one stroke. Two years later, Graeme was victorious at the Telecom Italia Open in Monza, where he defeated the Frenchman Thomas Levet in the playoffs. Early success and couple of wins helped McDowell to increase his net worth significantly and also became one of the most popular golfers in Europe at the time. However, he had to wait four years before his next win, which occurred at the Ballantine’s Championship 2008 in Tampines, Singapore, after he beat the Indian Jeev Milkha Singh in a playoff. Later that season, McDowell won the title at the Barclays Scottish Open in Aberdeen, while in 2010, he won at the Celtic Manor Wales Open in Newport.

McDowell’s biggest achievement came in June 2010, when he won the US Open at Pebble Beach by one stroke over the Frenchman Grégory Havret, earning over $1.3 million as a result. This win signified the end of a poor run for the European golfers, who had failed to win at the US Open for 40 years. By the end of 2010, Graeme had lifted the trophy at the Andalucía Valderrama Masters in Sotogrande, Spain, two strokes ahead of Søren Kjeldsen, Gareth Maybin, and his compatriot Damien McGrane.

The 2013 season was probably the best in McDowell’s career so far, as he won a pair of European Tour titles and one PGA Tour title. He secured a victory at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina in April, and then at the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Kent, England, in May. Graeme ended the successful year with a win at the Open de France in Paris, where he beat Richard Sterne by four strokes. McDowell won several millions of dollars in 2013, and that additionally improved his wealth. After that, Graeme defended his title at the Alstom Open de France in 2014, and his most recent win was at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, Mexico, in November 2015.

Regarding his personal life, Graeme McDowell has been married to interior designer Kristin Stape since 2013, and they have a daughter together. In the 2011 New Year Honours List, McDowell was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire for his services to golf. Aside from golf, he is a big fan of Manchester United football club.
