London, Jun 22 (ANI): Graeme McDowell, who became Britain’s first US Open champion for 40 years, is planning a long and boozy celebration after winning the crown.

He said his one-shot win over rank outsider Gregory Havret of France would be a life-changing experience.

McDowell got one million pounds for his win at the US Open, but can earn 10 million pounds more in sponsorships, endorsements, image rights and appearance fees.

“The first order of business is to have a drink out of the trophy - and, boy, will that taste sweet,” The Sun quoted McDowell, as saying.

“When I get home, I am going take it to my local, the Harbour Bar in Portrush, to fill it with Guinness. I can see a lot of Guinness in my immediate future. But I promise to sober up sometime around the Ryder Cup,” he added. (ANI)
