MBE for Graeme McDowell
December 31, 2010

U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell is among the sports figures honoured by Queen Elizabeth II in her New Year list.

The Northern Irish star was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire after a year in which he won his first major title and Pebble Beach and captured the decisive Ryder Cup points for Europe.

Also made an MBE was English football referee Howard Webb, who this year became the first man to take charge of the Champions League and World Cup finals in the same year.

Former England rugby player Mike Catt is an Officer of the Order of the British Empire after retiring in May, while Martin Broughton was knighted—for services to business rather than his stint as chairman of Premier League football club Liverpool.
