VIDEO: Graeme McDowell Goes Urban Golfing, Beer Drinking With SB Nation's Matt Ufford

Graeme McDowell Urban Golfing

Matt Ufford learns the game of golf from 2010 U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell while trying not to embarrass himself.

Golf is hard for everyone. It's a cruel game: frustrating to amateurs, and capricious even to professionals with seemingly-perfect swings. But what if the first golf swings of your entire life were recorded on video in front of someone who won the U.S. Open, and then published for the entire world to see? Ha ha, that would be humiliating! What kind of jackass would subject himself to such an embarrassment? Well... me.

I met with 2010 U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell to get some instruction on my swing, talk Irish politics, and drink Guinness (Delicious! Refreshing! Not at all a sponsor!). Watch the video below:
