Graeme McDowell was happy with his form in Shanghai
Graeme McDowell has shown a welcome return to form with a tied second finish at the China Open in Shanghai.

The Portrush man fired a two-under-par 69 in Sunday's final round to end the tournament on five under and five shots behind winner Markus Brier of Austria.

"After a five-week break it was nice to to come back and play as I have this week - I'm very pleased," he said.

Fellow Irish players Peter Lawrie, Damien McGrane and Gary Murphy all finished tied 39th on six over.

Lawrie shot a 77 while McGrane and Murphy carded 74s.

"I would have like to have pressured the leader a little bit more but it was nice to be in the mix," added McDowell.

"My game has improved progressively and I drove it better in every round.

"My putter went a little cold on me in the final round but that was probably due to not hitting it close enough.

"The wind switched every day and I am happy with my consistent level of play.

"I'm really taking some great form with me into the next couple of weeks."
