Graeme MacDowell's 2010

It just gets better and better for Graeme MacDowell as he has been awarded the MBE in the Queen's New Years Honours List. He started 2010 with a World Ranking (WR) of 50 and ends it with WR 6, throw in four tournament wins along the way, including the US Open victory at Pebble Beach, and the defining moment for European golf this year when GMac sinks the 'winning' putt at the Ryder Cup.

The awards have came thick and fast over these last four weeks of December, here are the ones that I could find...
