Graeme McDowell says his recent series of missed cuts motivated him to win the French Open in Paris.
"I can hardly believe it. Merion (the US Open) doesn't seem all that long ago. That (missing the US Open cut) was motivation for me as was missing the cut at the Irish Open," said McDowell.
"(But) I always believed I could do something on this golf course and I executed my game plan incredibly well this week."
