US Open: Graeme McDowell's Merion practice round halted by rain

Graeme McDowell is the last man out on the course at Merion before Monday's US Open practice is halted because of the wet conditions.

The Northern Irishman said he was pleased he had the opportunity to practise at the course last week.

The 2010 champion is being tipped to challenge strongly this week, although the soft course could help a number of long hitters who might have struggled on a firm bouncy course.
