Shane Lowry shook the Earth Course at Jumeirah with a final round 9-under-par 32-31=63 which set a clubhouse target of 18-under 270 in the DP World Tour Championship; only Kiradech Aphibarnrat matched him, only the winner Jon Rahm bettered the score.
The Irishman poured in the birdies right from the get-go. There were three in the first four holes (1, 2 and 4), but a bogey on the exception. It was the last of his season however. Another three in four came around the turn (7, 8 and 10). He bettered it with three in three from the 13th, the last of them a 4'0" conversion. At 17 a slippy 20-footer somehow eluded the hole, but he made up for it with a chip-and-putt birdie-4 at the last. He left the first tee 90 minutes before the leaders and yet was going nowhere after he signed his card as even with five holes for them to play he was in a tie for the lead and only Rahm evade him. "The golf course is there for the taking," he said. "My best score the season in my last round. My iron play has been great the last few weeks, giving myself lots of opportunities. The whole game came together this week." Nov 19 - 7:29 AM

Shane Lowry's form is bubbling nicely as he heads for a sixth appearance in the DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai.

The Irishman never quite got going in 2013 or 2015 (T39 and T48), but in his other three efforts on this course he's proved he's capable of contending. In 2011 and 2014 he did exactly that. In the former he was never outside the top ten all week before recording T8. In the latter he opened with a 66 and closed with one too, ending the week T5. Last year he opened 70-71 before again showing he could negotiate the weekend test with 69-69 for T19. He looks very close to finding his best golf. He was T12 in both the Andalucia Masters and last week's Nedbank Challenge. In between he was T8 at the Turkish Airlines Open.

Shane Lowry crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in round three of the Turkish Airlines Open, moving into a tie for top spot alongside Kiradech Aphibarnrat on 14-under 199 with 18 to play.

The World No. 93 started the day six behind halfway leader Nicolas Colsaerts but took advantage of the Belgian's faltering back nine. Lowry and Aphibarnrat now lead by two from Colsaerts, Padraig Harrington and Justin Rose. Producing his best golf of the week, the Irishman started his birdie count on the par-3 2nd hole and also ticked 6 and 7 to turn in 3-under. On Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort's back nine Lowry made further gains at 11 and 12 before moving into a share of the lead with a 6ft birdie conversion at 13. Five closing pars kept him in ideal position to win his first event since the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone. Lowry, who started the week 62nd on the Race to Dubai, leads the Putts Per Gir stats to far this week on 1.571. He's third for Putts Per Round (26.3).
Nov 4 - 10:17 AM

Boosted by a late flurry of birdies, Shane Lowry fired a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round at the Turkish Airlines Open, advancing 11 spots up the leaderboard to T3.

His score of 8-under 134 currently matches the clubhouse lead although Nicolas Colsaerts is 14-under with two to play so Lowry has some catching up do on the weekend. The Irishman is only 62nd on the Race to Dubai so needs a good week to secure his spot in the final 60 who contest the season-ending DP World Tour Championship. He's on target to do that after recording seven birdies against two bogeys today. His first dropped shot came at No. 2 after an opening par but he quickly wiped that out with red numbers at 3, 5 and 7. After five pars, he got hot down the stretch and circles at 13, 14, 16 and 17 lifted him to 9-under before he failed to get up and down at 18 and bogeyed it for the second day running.
Nov 3 - 9:26 AM

Shane Lowry littered his second round at the Italian Open with five bogeys and an even-par 35-36=71 left him at 2-under 140, two swings too many to make the cut.

The Irishman was a popular pick this week but his errors today undid the good work of five red circles. A run of five dropped shots in nine holes from the 13th put him right behind the 8-ball and he couldn't repair the damage despite two birdies in his final five holes. In total, 66 players made it through on 4-under or better and those who failed to make the weekend at Golf Club Milano included: 139- Andrew Johnston, Thomas Detry, Lee Slattery, Thomas Bjorn ... 140- Stephen Gallacher, Andy Sullivan, Edoardo Molinari, Martin Kaymer, Julian Suri, Renato Paratore ... 141- Bradley Dredge, Lucas Bjerregaard ... 142- Mikko Ilonen, Hideto Tanihara, Matteo Manassero, Padraig Harrington ... 143- Ryan Fox ... 144- Danny Willett ... 145- Graeme Storm, Thongchai Jaidee. Oh, and Victor Dubuisson withdrew... yet again.

With a walk-off birdie in front of the Old Course clubhouse, Shane Lowry completed a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and settled just a shot behind joint-leaders Paul Dunne and Nicolas Colsaerts.

Lowry is a hugely popular pick this week. He's posted two top sixes and a further pair of top 20s in his last five starts in the event and arrived in Scotland after T7 in Sunday's British Masters. Showing his liking for St. Andrews once more, the Irishman set off on his journey around the links with an opening birdie and played par golf until the 8th hole where he picked up another shot. Lowry traded a bogey at 11 with a birdie at 12 and then splashed red at 14 and 18 to end the day in a tie for third spot with four others including defending champion Tyrrell Hatton. One of five players in the top seven to play the Old Course today, Lowry now heads to Carnoustie for round two.
Oct 5 - 1:09 PM

Former winner Shane Lowry torched Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course for a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in round two of the Portugal Masters, his 36-hole score of 9-under 133 securing a piece of the clubhouse lead alongside Eddie Pepperell and George Coetzee with the morning wave nearly complete.

Lowry took the title in 2012 but today's 64 was his lowest ever lap of the course in seven appearances. Beginning his round from 10th tee, the Irishman started his birdie count with gains at 12 and 13 before adding another red circle at 15. On his second nine, he had another burst with birdies at 2, 4 and 5 and, after dropping a lone shot of the day at 5, responded with a pair of closing par breakers at 8 and 9 to match the clubhouse lead. Lowry also shot a second-round 64 when T7 at the Wyndham Championship on his last start. That was over a month ago so he's quickly shaken off any rust.

World No. 83 Shane Lowry signed for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 after the final round of the Wyndham Championship to conclude on 15-under 265, up two spots to a season-best T7.

This was the 30-year-old's 16th start of the season, sixth top 25 and first top 10. At a projected 127th in the FedExCup standings his season is over, but he's fully exempt thru the 2017-18 season from his lone TOUR title at the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone. After opening in 67, career-low 64 and 67, the Irishman began T9 on 12-under, four back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 0.992 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.517 approach-the-green. Lowry squared a lone bogey-5 at 10, overshadowed by four circles at Nos. 5, 6, 11 and 15, two from between 13 and 32 feet. He posted 1.813 putts per GIR and 0.995 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts.
Aug 20 - 5:45 PM

World No. 83 Shane Lowry turned in a 3-under-par 36-31=67 after the third round of the Wyndham Championship for a three-day total of 12-under 198, currently T9, exactly where he began.

The 30-year-old found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 0.526 SG: Tee-to-Green. He squared bogeys at Nos. 4, 16 (3-putt from 38'9") and 18, offset by four birdie-3s at 10, 11, 13 and 17, all four from between 10 and 18 feet, adding eagle-3 at 15 from 6'5". The Irishman is projecting at 127th in the FedExCup standings, up 18 places thru 54 holes. He posted 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.728 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.
Aug 19 - 5:38 PM

Shane Lowry launched up the leaderboard with a 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, reaching 9-under 131 after two days at Sedgefield Country Club.

The Irishman peppered 16 greens in regulation today, and received up-and-down putting with the flat stick. On the positive side, he sank four putts from outside nine feet, including a 34'11" birdie bomb at the par-4 11th. On the down side, he missed four putts in the 6-to-11 foot range, perhaps leaving a few more strokes out on the course. After 36 holes, Lowry has just two bogeys on his card to record the lowest 36-hole score of his PGA TOUR career, previously 11-under 133 at the 2016 PLAYERS. Lowry entered the week ranked 145th in the FedExCup race. While he already has his card locked up for another season (WGC-Bridgestone win), Lowry would love to crack the top 125 and earn a debut spot in the Playoffs.
Aug 18 - 5:49 PM

Shane Lowry blitzed the front nine at Muirfield Village Golf Club in round two of the Memorial Tournament, piecing together a 4-under-par 31-37=68 to reach the weekend on 4-under 140.

The Irishman was locked in to start the round, sticking seven of his first nine approach shots to inside 13 feet while also holing out a 16'3" birdie from off the green at the par-4 third hole. Lowry cooled off on the back nine, but he did everything in this round, except for putt. The 30-year-old walked off the course losing 1.249 strokes putting on the day. The most painful hole was the par-3 16th where he had 13'4" for birdie before three-jacking, missing the par attempt from just 3'4". Depsite the poor putting round, Lowry will enter the weekend just outside the top 10, ready to make a move if his flat stick can heat up.
Jun 2 - 2:16 PM

Shane Lowry showed his liking for Wentworth again with a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the BMW PGA Championship, good enough for a top five place in the clubhouse and just a shot behind leaders Scott Jamieson, Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Francesco Molinari.

Lowry has three top six finishes in this event, including second place in 2014, and regards it as one of his favorite venues in golf. The Irishman arrived this year in mixed form after missing cuts at Augusta National and Sawgrass but a top 25 at the Wells Fargo suggested he wasn't too far away. Back in the familiar surroundings of Wentworth, he posted his fifth sub-70 round in the last six laps of the parkland English course with six birdies against two bogeys. Lowry opened his account with back-to-back gains at 5 and 6 but then gave both shots back with consecutive bogeys at 8 and 9. He recovered in some style after a trio of birdies at 10, 11 and 12 and missed a good chance for another at 17. However, two big blows set up an eagle opportunity at the last and he two-putted for a birdie to end a sunny day on the revamped West Course a single stroke off the clubhouse lead.
May 25 - 8:45 AM

Shane Lowry is off to a flying start at the RBC Heritage, following a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during his opening lap of Harbour Town Golf Links, staking out a spot just one shy of early leader Luke Donald. UPDATE: Donald would later get passed by Bud Cauley who shot a bogey-free, 8-under 63, placing Lowry three off the pace.

The Irishman is getting his first look at Harbour Town GL this week, but had no troubles getting adjusted in round one. His primary scoring tool was the flat stick today, splashing home three birdie bombs from outside 20 feet. The longest coming at the closing, par-4 18th to close his day with a 58'1" splash. It wasn't his only method of scoring though, one example coming at the par-4 sixth hole where he stuck his 150-yard approach to 23 inches for a stress-free birdie. Lowry is coming off a missed cut at the Masters, despite starting strong to position himself T12 after round one. He ballooned with a 7-over 79 in round two, so tomorrow's round should have his full attention as he looks to avoid the same fate for a second straight week.
Apr 13 - 12:41 PM

Shane Lowry’s memories of the Masters will focus on last year’s bright start when he heads down Magnolia Lane to tee it up at Augusta National Golf Club.

When he pegged T9 at the 2014 British Open, then T9 and T2 at the 2015 and 2016 U.S. Opens the Irishman looked ready to join his many compatriots in being a major contender. But the disappointment of that latter result seemed to hit him hard and he has no top ten finish in 16 starts since. It reflects his performance here 12 months ago. He had missed the cut on his only previous visit to ANGC, but opened with 68 for T2, only to then limp home with rounds of 76-79-75. Toss in that earlier appearance and he’s only broken 75 twice in six laps. He has a fine short game, but found only half the greens in regulation in 2015 and just 58.3% last year (44th). Struggled last time out in the WGC World Match Play and withdrew from the Genesis Open when set to miss the cut during a long weather delay. Before then posted top 20s at Pebble Beach and Scottsdale.

Shane Lowry exchanged heavy blows with World No. 10 Sergio Garcia, escaping with a halved match during the opening round of group play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The Irishman arrived with a less-than-stellar career match play record, just 5-10-1 heading into the week (3-5-1 at the WGC-Match Play). The clear highlight was a first-round upset of Rory McIlroy back at the 2013 edition of this event. Lowry traded two birdies with two bogeys on the front nine today, finding himself with a 1-up lead at the turn. The Irishman would maintain control of the match all the way up to the closing par 4. After Garcia secured his par, Lowry stood over a 5'7" putt to halve the hole (and win the match). Instead, the Irishman knocked it by the cup to end the match all square, giving each golfer half a point for their efforts. Lowry will take on Jon Rahm in round two, tomorrow.
