Richard Green and Miguel Angel Jimenez both shot 69 and shared third place at 10-under 274.

The 28-year-old McDowell, who will play in the British Open this week, has won twice this season.

"It really was a tough weekend of golf with such a stacked field," McDowell said. "This is a massive relief."

World No. 2 Phil Mickelson carded a 2-over 73 and ended up 12 shots back.
