LIV golfer Graeme McDowell shared his plans for the future during his recent appearance on the Fairway to Heaven podcast.

McDowell explained that he would probably work in the television and media industry. He added that he would love to share his insights about sports as he can't see himself "walking away from the game of golf."

Speaking about his future plans, Graeme McDowell said:

"In 10 years, I'll be 54, I'll become 55. We talked about media, we talked about TV I think I have no idea if I can do what you guys do. I have no idea if I could have a boss; I don't know if I could handle a boss and someone telling me what to do, where to be and how to do it. I've always potentially seen myself on TV.
"Talking a lot as I do and hopefully bringing an educated opinion to a sport that I love a lot. I can't see myself walking away from the game of golf and not wanting to be involved in some way, share, or form. So it's one of those things until I try it. I have no idea if it's something I can do or whether I like it or not, but I think being on TV looks pretty fun."(1:05:41-1:06:37)
