Former major winner Graeme McDowell says he's going globe-trotting over a hectic next two months in a bid to rescue his worst season since 2007.

The 2010 US Open champion took five weeks off after the PGA Championships in August after missing out on the US PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs.

With only one top-10 finish in 2015, McDowell has slumped from 15th at the start of this year to 71st in the world.

But he showed glimpses of a return to form at last week's European Open in Germany with four solid under-par rounds (68-70-70-70) as he finished tied in 36th.

The last time he finished the year outside the world's top 50 was way back in 2007, when he was 106th.

With 2016 Ryder Cup points also now up for grabs, beginning with his appearance at this week's Links Championships in Scotland, McDowell is set for a frantic end to the season.
