Graeme McDowell may not win this week's DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. But we're not sure he'll care.

Why, you ask? Because he won the practice rounds.

On a trip to Dubai two weeks ago to see the competition course, McDowell proposed to long-time girlfriend Kristin Stape, according to a Golf Channel report. McDowell took his knee on a rooftop helipad 656 feet off the ground:

"I did it properly, getting down on one knee," he explained while preparing for this week's season finale on the European Tour. "She was very shocked and had no idea what was going on."

Apparently, "shocked" and "no idea what was going on" were positive reactions, even atop a 656 foot helipad because she said yes.

McDowell's close friend Rory McIlroy congratulated the couple on Twitter.
