Graeme 'fired up' for Ryder

Graeme McDowell will put the finishing touches to his Ryder Cup preparations this week after making an encouraging return to action.

After a month off McDowell put in a solid performance in the Austrian Open, finishing in a share of third place.

"I'm fired up, no doubt about it," McDowell said. "It's down to Celtic Manor on the Monday and it's one of those weeks when you want to take your game with you to the Ryder Cup."
