1. (SOUNDBITE)(English) FRENCH OPEN WINNER GRAEME MCDOWELL SAYS:

"Fifteen and sixteen were key. I thought I was up out of those putts, both of them, and I thought I had missed them. I thought I had missed the one on fifteen right and I thought I had missed the one on sixteen left. The golfing gods shone - you know, were looking down on me - and they figured it was my day. So you know I will take that and run. Richard Sterne played magnificently, you know he kept me honest all day long, and I was happy to have that cushion down the last."

STORY: World number nine Graeme McDowell held off the challenge of South Africa's Richard Sterne on Sunday (July 7) to win the French Open by four shots at the tough Le Golf National.

The pair were joint leaders at five-under following the third round, with several other contenders within striking distance at the 2018 Ryder Cup venue.

McDowell said that he thought he had missed putts at holes 15 and 16 but he sank them and then birdied the 17th, while rival Sterne bogeyed the 16th and the 17th.

"Fifteen and sixteen were key," he said afterwards. "I thought I was up out of those putts, both of them, and I thought I had missed them. I thought I had missed the one on fifteen right and I thought I had missed the one on sixteen left. The golfing gods shone - you know, were looking down on me - and they figured it was my day. So you know I will take that and run. Richard Sterne played magnificently, you know he kept me honest all day long, and I was happy to have that cushion down the last."
