Graeme McDowell said he is targeting another Major title before he retires after finishing runner-up with Shane Lowry in the QBE Shootout in Naples, Florida.

The 38-year-old, who won his only career Major in 2010 at the US Open, was pleased to follow up his first top 10 finish in almost 12 months at the recent Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with second place on Sunday.

McDowell and fellow Irishman Lowry started the final day on the Gold Course at the Tiburon Golf Club level with American duo Steve Stricker and Sean O'Hair at the top of the leaderboard.

I think with the right golf course set up, and at the right time in the future, I'd love to compete and try to win another one.

Both groups battled valiantly throughout the round, but an eagle at the par-five 17th was the difference as the American duo won by two shots with a score of 64.

Nevertheless, McDowell could not fault their round, which included six birdies, and it has given him renewed confidence in his desire to add another Major title to his collection in the new year.

He said: "The game has changed at a massive rate around me in the seven years since I won a Major championship.

"But I think with the right golf course set up, and at the right time in the future, I'd love to compete and try to win another one."

Meanwhile, McDowell's fellow Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy is 3.25 to win a Major in 2018 while he is 1.33 to miss out.
