McDowell played 10 birdies on Saturday as he hit his second consecutive 64 in the Dominican Republic

Graeme McDowell takes a one-shot lead on Sunday after his second street 64 in the final round of the PGA Tour event in the Dominican Republic.

McDowell, 39, moved to 15 under par after carding 10 birdies in his 8-under-line round at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship.

Now 257th in the world ranking, the 2010 US Open champion seeks his first win since 2015 on Sunday.

The Northern Irishman leads the American player Chris Stroud with one shot.

This event in the Dominican Republic is disputed by players who did not qualify for this week's WGC Match Play event in Texas.

Stroud combined McDowell & # 39; s 64 in a round in which an eagle placed three fourth par fourth.

Sungjae, South Korea & night leader Im and the Australian Aaron Baddeley are third place shots, two shots from the pace.

Im fired a 69 on Saturday with Baddeley calling a 68.

Paul Dunne of Ireland will share fifth place on 11 under the last day while his countryman Seamus Power stayed on four under after firing a 72 on Saturday.

McDowell & # 39; s last win came at the Mayakoba Golf Classic PGA Tour event in 2015.

The Northern Irish is exempt from this year's US Open competition at Pebble Beach, where he won in 2010 but still has to earn a place in The Open in his home club of Royal Portrush.
