Graeme McDowell is happy playing on the Asian Tour and expects even bigger things in the future. LIV Golf and the Asian Tour partnered and it turned out to be a great combination. In an interview after the performance, McDowell stressed how big this could be for all the players.

"I feel fortunate to be out there. I'm really happy to watch the Asian Tour go from strength-to-strength, because this is just the beginning. I think we're just starting to scratch the surface of where The International Series can go, where the Asian Tour can go, how big it can be, and how many great players can we get to the Asian Tour, and how many LIV Golf players will continue supporting these International Series events.

PIF and LIV are very energetic about what they can do with the Asian Tour but it has to evolve. It has its schedule, sponsors and traditional venues, and it's great to be able to have all these opportunities, but it takes time to integrate those into the schedule.

As word gets round, guys are coming over to play and enjoying it. Speaking personally, for myself, I do want to supplement my schedule - 14 is not enough for me. If I'm not in the Majors, I need another six or eight other events, and the Asian Tour is my opportunity now."- he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com

Graeme McDowell and Scotland

McDowell does not want to play in Scotland next week.

Namely, his priority at the moment is his family. It is obvious that he wants to spend more time with them, considering that lately, he has fewer and fewer opportunities to do so. "I'm super happy to be able to come to England.

Scotland next week would be a great opportunity if I could play. Then, I am scheduled to play Singapore, Hong Kong, and Indonesia this year. My little brother is actually in Orlando with his family right now so that's the reason why I'm not going to play Fairmont [St Andrews] next week.

I don't get home as much as I used to. In summer 2020 we were planning to bring the kids back home but just like everyone else's life, things got messed up there for a few years. In Florida I will be able to spend a lot of time with my brother and his kids because I haven't really seen very much of them at all.

It was bad scheduling on our part - when these two events got announced that was a disaster because I could only play one of them."
