Graeme McDowell was left to rue one "weekend-wrecking" round at Valhalla today.

The Irishman finished with a respectable 71 despite a quadruple-bogey eight on the 13th to leave him at one-over-par.

"I played beautiful this morning," McDowell said.

"It's so disappointing to make an elementary quadruple bogey. It's a card-wrecker, a tournament-wrecker, a weekend-wrecker, all of the above.

"It's a tough little right pin position. And the first ball, I really think it was a wet, mudball. I was trying to hit a little draw in there left of the pin and it stayed.

"Very disappointing. Otherwise, a great round."
