McDowell's an Ace Driver in Denmark
Graeme McDowell was celebrating another first at the weekend as he picked up the keys to a £60,000 Audi Cabriolet A4.

The car was The Ulstermanís reward for his first European Tour hole in one at the inaugural Nordic Masters. Graemeís ace was the fourteenth on Tour this season and came at Simonís Golf Clubís 231-yard 14th.
The perfect three iron not only brought immediate reward, but also ensured Graeme qualified for the weekend action in a season where he has been tinkering with his swing.
Andrew Coltart had a rare finish outside the top 10, but in finishing a commendable 13th he was one of just four players who broke 70 in each of the four days in Denmark.
Huge crowds gathered in the hope of watching local hero Soren Hansen score a first triumph on home soil, but in the end they had to applaud Englandís Ian Poulter, who avoided a play-off when former European No.1 Colin Montgomerie failed to birdie the final hole.
Mark Fosterís improvement after injury continued with another top 20 finish and Welshman David Park also broke par in all four rounds to be 22th.
The strength of the field and the scoring was reflected in Simon Dysonís week. The Yorkshireman had a third-round 66, was never worse than one under par in any of his four rounds and still finished in 36th place alongside stablemate David Dixon.
