| ||Graeme McDowell will always have fond memories of Celtic Manor. Last year, he
posted rounds of 64 and 63 on the weekend to win the Wales Open by three
strokes. His 15-under on the weekend was his final score as he played the
opening two rounds at even par. Later last year, McDowell holed the winning
putt at the Ryder Cup, which was also held at Celtic Manor. He will be joined
in the field this week by three of his Ryder Cup teammates -- Ross Fisher,
Peter Hanson and Miguel Angel Jimenez -- as well as their captain, Colin
Montgomerie. Golf Channel will have three hours of coverage all four days.
The European Tour heads to Italy next week for the BMW Italian Open, where
Fredrik Andersson Hed is the defending champion.
