Graeme McDowell feels 'primed and ready' for a big year

Graeme McDowell is looking forward to a long and successful season and feels physically and mentally refreshed after taking some time out to relax over the winter.

McDowell told Stephen Watson of BBC Sport Northern Ireland that he was not as fresh as he would have liked to be in the summers of 2012 and 2013, feeling he had played too much golf by the time the most important tournaments came around.

This year he will focus primarily on the four Majors, the FedEx Cup games and the Ryder Cup, which takes place in Gleneagles in September.
