McDowell excited by Ryder Cup prospects

Graeme McDowell says he is concentrating on performing to the best of his ability for Europe in this week's Ryder Cup at Medinah.

The Northern Ireland golfer was paired with compatriot Rory McIlroy for the first practice rounds on Tuesday.

McDowell holed the decisive winning putt as Europe regained the Ryder Cup by beating the United States at Celtic Manor in 2010.
