Shane Lowry lost a lot of ground with a 4-over-par 37-39=76 during the second round of the 80th Masters, arriving at the halfway mark with an even-par 144.
The Irishman didn't have his best stuff today, landing just nine greens despite hitting 11 fairways. His round included three par-saving putts from outside seven feet, so he did manage to squeeze some extra juice out of his round and prevent a complete disaster. The windy conditions today at Augusta National are causing havoc for any golfer without their A game today. Despite today's poor effort, Lowry is T11 on the live leaderboard and still right in the thick of things entering the weekend. Apr 8 - 4:28 PM

Shane Lowry leapt up the leaderboard with a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in the opening round of the 80th Masters.

The Irishman has no qualms with playing in windy conditions and that's exactly what Augusta, Georgia, gave him today. Lowry striped 11 (of 14) fairways on his way to 15 greens in regulation. He took care of the scoring early in the round, kicking off a four-hole birdie train at the par-5 second with a 4-footer. That was on the heels of a 12 footer to save par on the par-4 first hole. The putter remained clutch throughout the round. The lone blemish came at the par-3 12th hole when he landed in the greenside bunker and had troubles get back onto the green. Lowry posted rounds of 75 and 72 last year on his way to a missed cut in his debut. He's well on his way to a career-best finish here at Augusta National.
Apr 7 - 7:25 PM

Shane Lowry enters the WGC-Dell Match Play as the 24-seed and plays out of Group 14 with American Zach Johnson, Germany's Martin Kaymer and Australian Marcus Fraser.

The Irishman has already made waves in this tournament when defeating Rory McIlroy on the opening day in 2013 when the event was straight knockout from the outset. He followed that with a thumping 6&5 victory over Carl Pettersson before losing to Graeme McDowell in the last 16. Lowry got revenge over G-Mac at Harding Park last year but lost his other two group matches to Rickie Fowler and Harris English. Of course, he already has a WGC win to his name after landing the Bridgestone Invitational last year so will feel he can go deep this week. With Kaymer struggling for form and Fraser lacking experience in this format, he should feel confident although Johnson will be a tough opponent. Lowry is 5-for-5 on the PGA TOUR this year, including T6 in Phoenix. He even has a little bit of state form after finishing T15 in the 2013 Texas Open.

Shane Lowry fashioned a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the first round of this week's Honda Classic to join George McNeill for a share of the very early lead.

The Irishman fired out of the gates with a birdie train that opened on the par-4 fourth with a 14'8" birdie roll and ended two holes later with a tap-in birdie on the par-4 sixth. The train came off the tracks for a bit as he bogeyed the following two holes, missing putts from inside six feet on both. After trading a pair of bogeys with two birdies, Lowry saved the best for last. A superb approach shot left him with just 3'9" for eagle on the par-5 18th hole. Despite his early struggles from inside six feet, he splashed this home with ease to join McNeill as early co-leaders. Lowry was a popular selection this week due to the heavy wind in the forecast, and he's paying off thus far.
Feb 25 - 12:34 PM

Shane Lowry rallied to a 3-under-par 36-32=68 on day four of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to wrap his tourney-debut at 9-under 275, currently T5 on the leaderboard and tied with Will Wilcox for top honors among first-timers at TPC Scottsdale.

After sharing a three-way T1 with an opening 6-under 65, Lowry got progressively worse over his next two loops posting 70-72. He began his final frame clinging to a seven-way T10, but a distant seven adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee. The 28-year-old was sleepwalking at even-par thru his first 11 holes on Sunday, exchanging two birdies with two bogeys, but then ripped-off five circles over his final seven holes, including three straight on Nos. 15-17 (two of those were of the two-putt variety). He navigated a two-putt from 52'9" at the par-4 18th for his final tally. The Irishman is in the published field at next week's AT&T Pebble Beach where he'll make his second appearance (T21/2015).
Feb 7 - 5:05 PM

Shane Lowry stalled out to a 1-over-par 33-39=72 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 6-under 207, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee.

After sharing the 18-hole lead with a sparkling 6-under 65, the Irishman is getting progressively worse, posting 70-72. The latter drops him six spots on the day and into a seven-way logjam in 10th place. Lowry's tee-to-game was fine splitting 11 (of 14) fairways and hitting 14 greens in regulation, but after posting positive numbers in strokes gained: putting in his first two rounds, he cratered to a -0.953 mark in round three. Thru his first eight holes on day three, he was clicking, circling three straight on Nos. 3-5, but he played his last 13 holes in birdie-less 4-over, squaring bogeys at 9, 11, 15 and 16, all failed scrambles. The mid-range putts that were falling over the first two days, ceased in R3, missing seven from between eight and 20 feet.
Feb 6 - 7:19 PM

The second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open was suspended at 6:12 p.m. MT due to darkness (stranding four players) and will resume on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. Approximate R3 tee times are between 9-11 a.m.

No frost delays today like in yesterday's lid-lifter but all 130 players still couldn't get around. Overnight tri-leader Shane Lowry once again beat the horn, back-pedaling a bit with a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in R2. The 28-year-old was a steady 2-under on his loop thru 16 holes with four birdies against two bogeys, but then swallowed double bogey-6 on the drivable par-4 17th after putting his approach long and into the water. He responded with a birdie-3 from 3'7" at the par-4 18th, his fifth birdie on just 11 greens in regulation. Lowry's 7-under 135 is three adrift of 36-hole leader James Hahn.
Feb 5 - 8:41 PM

Shane Lowry crafted a 6-under-par 34-31=65 to kick off his tourney debut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. UPDATE: With play suspended due to darkness at 6:11 p.m. MT, Lowry co-leads in the clubhouse with Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama.

Lowry is one (of 31) making their maiden visit to TPC Scottsdale and he's also a first-time member on TOUR, though not a rookie. He opened off No. 10 tee and circled par breakers at 11 (from 28'5") and 13 before connecting three straight on holes 16-18, including a 29-footer at the raucous par-3 16th, and a 25'4" roll at the par-4 18th. After turning in blemish-free 5-under, the 28-year-old outpaced bogeys at five and six (failed scrambles) with circles on Nos. 3 and 4, and iced it with a 26'5" birdie at the par-3 seventh. The Irishman's totals show nine (of 14) fairways, 13 greens in regulation and at last check, a tidy 3.816 strokes gained: putting.
Feb 4 - 5:12 PM

Before inclement weather suspended the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a third time at 1:57 p.m. PST, Shane Lowry put his second Farmers Insurance Open appearance in the books with a 1-over-par 37-36=73 to post even-par 288, up 23 places to T18. UPDATE: With play completed, Lowry finished T13 and his 73 was tied for third-best lap of the final round (Brandt Snedeker-69; Robert Streb-72).

We've already endured two stoppages totaling 99 minutes and this halt in play, like the first, will see the players being brought back into the clubhouse. Prior to the horn, Lowry completed his first PGA TOUR start of the season. The first-time TOUR member (though not a rookie), began his final frame on 1-under (T41) after opening in 71-71-73. Seeing his first stroke-play action since T25 eight weeks ago at the NedBank Golf Challenge, the Irishman, who went off 10 tee, exchanged two birdies with two bogeys to turn even. He squared one more bogey at the par-3 third to go along with eight pars on his inward half. The 28-year-old gets a head start to Arizona where's he's scheduled to make his Waste Management Phoenix Open debut.
Jan 31 - 5:16 PM

Ireland Shane Lowry and England's Andy Sullivan, one of only two pairings retained by captain Darren Clarke on day two of the EurAsia Cup, rewarded his faith with a second win.

The pair completed a 2&1 win over Shingo Katayama (Japan) and Ashun Wu (China) in the fourballs, playing the 17 holes in 7-under. In Saturday's foursomes, up against Katayama and Prayad Marksaeng (Thailand), they could only play the front nine in 1-under, which left them all square with their opponents. But the back nine was a different story. Birdies on 10, 11, 14 and 16 saw them take charge and complete a 3&2 victory. After the fourballs Sullivan said: "I think we have similar personalities and the same sort of sense of humour. When we were out there it felt very comfortable." Saturday confirmed that they sync well.
Jan 16 - 3:55 AM

Despite his eligibility for next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Shane Lowry has decided not to compete in the no-cut event.

Lowry gained entry through his victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, his first on the PGA TOUR. The Irishman played a busy fall schedule overseas, so you can't really blame him for sitting this one out. His stock is at an all-time high as he enters 2016, currently ranked No. 21 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Shane Lowry is one of seven players who can still win the Race to Dubai going into this week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship.

The Irishman needs a win or solo second to have a chance of becoming Europe's No. 1 but would also require top two Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett to finish worse than eighth and for Justin Rose, Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace not to win. Lowry made a dramatic leap when winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and has since finished T2 in the British Masters and solo eighth at the Turkish Airlines Open. However, with the finishing line in sight he's wobbled with T68 and T56 in his last two starts. Of more encouragement to gamers is his record at the Earth course which shows a fifth last year and another top 10 on debut in 2011.

Shane Lowry authored a final-round 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the British Masters at Woburn to finish joint runner-up on 13-under 271.

That was two swings behind winner Matt Fitzpatrick and left him tied for second spot with Soren Kjeldsen and Fabrizio Zanotti. The WGC-Bridgestone Invitational winner cut a frustrated figure for much of the day as he failed to convert a series of birdie chances and he'll feel this was one that got away. Lowry took another 31 putts today, having needed 34 on Friday and 33 yesterday. He missed just two greens in regulation in round four, picking up shots at 4, 6, 12, 15 and 17 while he swallowed his only bogey of the day at 14. "Gutted I couldn't get the job done," said Lowry on Twitter before revealing that he was now sitting down to watch Ireland v France in the Rugby Union World Cup.

Pre-tournament favorite Shane Lowry added a second-round 2-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 66 to reach 7-under 135 after 36 holes of the British Masters at Woburn.

Today's steady lap of the Marquess featured three birdies against a single bogey and nudged him up into the top five after the morning wave. Right now, he's just two shots behind joint leaders Matt Fitzpatrick and Soren Kjeldsen. Lowry picked up his first shot of the day on the short par-4 12th but had to settle for pars on the rest of the back nine. He added further birdies at 4 and 7 and dropped his only shot of the day on the par-3 6th. Given the confidence he must have from his WGC-Bridgestone Invitational win two months ago, Lowry still looks as if he could be the man to beat this weekend.

The UK bookmakers have installed Shane Lowry as the favorite for victory going into this week's British Masters at Woburn.

It's less than two months since Lowry elevated his career to a new level by winning the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in Ohio. In addition to that, the Irishman returned to action after a lengthy break by posting T19 in last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland where he shot 69-66-67 over the final 54 holes after a slow start. His record on English soil adds to his appeal for gamers as he's reeled off five top 10s in seven starts. The latest was T6 in May's BMW PGA Championship which, like this week's Marquess course at Woburn, is a tree-lined parkland course in the south of England.
