In a rematch of the third round of the 2013 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Shane Lowry evened the score with a 1-up victory in this year's first round.
Lowry made his debut in the tournament at Dove Mountain two years ago and promptly eliminated Ulsterman Rory McIlroy. After crushing Carl Pettersson in the second round, G-Mac closed the book on the would-be Cinderlla story from Ireland with a 3-and-2 win in the third. Today, Lowry saw to it that McDowell wouldn't get a taste of the lead, much less the win. He set the tone with an opening eagle-3 at the first hole. McDowell scratched back to all square, but Lowry built the lead for the final time with a birdie-3 at 12. He doubled it with a birdie-3 at 16, and then lost the par-3 17th with a double bogey to G-Mac's bogey. Matching birdies at 18 sealed the victory. Lowry draws Rickie Fowler in the second round. McDowell has a tee time with Harris English. Apr 29 - 8:48 PM

Shane Lowry will hope to take more big scalps at this week's WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.

On his debut in this event two years ago, Lowry took down Rory McIlroy in the first round before eventually losing to Graeme McDowell in the last 16. G-Mac will again be one of his opponents in the round-robin format this year, Group 13 rounded out by American duo Rickie Fowler and Harris English. Lowry has lost four of his six singles encounters since the 2013 WGC-Match Play -- all at the European Tour's Volvo World Match Play Championship -- but should enjoy a return to the West Coast. The Irishman performed strongly in California earlier in the season, finishing T7 at the Farmers Insurance Open and T21 at Pebble Beach.

Shane Lowry will complete the set by lining up in his first Masters at Augusta National Golf Club this week.

The Irishman has played in two U.S. Opens, three Open Championships and a pair of PGA Championships, making five cuts out of eight. A place in the world's top 50 has punched his ticket to Augusta National for the first time. Lowry's excellent chipping should help his chances of a strong debut while he's also shown some impressive form in his first few events on the PGA TOUR. The highlights were a T7 at Torrey Pines and a T17 in the WGC-Cadillac Championship.
Apr 6 - 12:34 PM

Shane Lowry attempts to wrangle his first PGA TOUR victory as a non-member in the field at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Perhaps the week of St. Patrick's Day will bring a big pot of gold for the Irishman. He's been a familiar face on the PGA TOUR during the 2014-15 season, recently tying for seventh in the Farmers Insurance Open, sharing 21st in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and tying for 17th in the WGC-Cadillac Championship. It would not be out of the question to see his first trip to Bay Hill result in his first PGA TOUR win, but it's likely that more eyes will be on another first-timer who hails from Northern Ireland. That person would be his good friend, Rory McIlroy.

Shane Lowry carded a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 on Spyglass Hill Golf Club in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The Irishman reaches the 54-hole mark at 12-under 203. Spyglass Hill typically plays as the most difficult course in the Pebble Beach rotation, and that appears to be the case this season as well. He certainly made up ground on the field with his effort on Saturday. His round featured five birdies and 13 pars. He needs to take it deep at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Sunday if he is to have any chance at a win.
Feb 14 - 5:12 PM

Shane Lowry fired a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to join Martin Laird in the clubhouse lead at 7-under 281.

Not bad considering the Irishman began his week on a sponsor exemption. His round featured five birdies, all inside of nine feet, to just one bogey. Considering he is not a member of the PGA TOUR, but is actively seeking playing opportunities, he likely has one eye on capturing Special Temporary Membership. His results this week will likely go a long way towards that goal.
Feb 8 - 4:26 PM

Shane Lowry will tee it up in the Farmers Insurance Open this week by virtue of a sponsor exemption.

The Irishman is not a member of the PGA TOUR, so exemptions are one of the few ways through which he can gain entry into a PGA TOUR event. He hasn't missed a cut anywhere in the world since, ironically, the Irish Open in the summer of 2014. This marks his first action in 2015. If he picks up where he left off, Lowry could be dangerous this week. He finished 11th in the Netbank Golf Challenge to put a bow on 2014.
Feb 4 - 10:31 PM

When the first edition of the Official World Golf Ranking is released for the new year, Shane Lowry will find himself sitting a career-best 42nd.

He'll close out 2014 slotted a career-best 44th (for the third time) before the formula is updated next week. While debate will forever wage over the value of the OWGR, his position is probably pretty accurate. No, he didn't win this year, but runner-up finishes at the BMW PGA Championship and Wales Open highlighted a banner season on the European Tour where he placed a career-best 10th in the Race to Dubai. The Irishman made news for his disgust with the PGA of America over a grouping with fellow big fellas Kevin Stadler and Brendon de Jonge at the PGA Championship, but Lowry didn't let it get in the way of a T46. He's already exempt into the Masters and Open Championship in 2015, and he'll gain entry in the other two majors via the OWGR (if he doesn't qualify another way first). The 27-year-old is also already exempt into his first WGC-Cadillac Championship, where he may serve as a tasty option in weekly games.

Shane Lowry enters this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions ranked 51st in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The Irishman enters the week in fantastic form, posting top 20s in seven of his last 10 worldwide stroke-play events, dating all the way back to June of last year. The 27-year old appears to have found his swing and is circling in on his third career victory. Gamers should have a hard look at Lowry this week, in all formats.

Shane Lowry signed for a blemish-free 4-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the PGA Championship to end the week at 1-under 283.

Lowry picked up seven birdies and handed back a trio of bogeys on his slosh around Valhalla Golf Club. Three of those birdies fell from outside 15 feet, with a 35'1" birdie at the signature par-4 13th hole the resounding highlight. Though he split just half of his 14 fairways and landed 10 GIR, he putted to a 1.30 average and gained just shy of two strokes with the flat stick. While he won't factor into the decision this week, he departs Kentucky with a nice taste in his mouth.

Shane Lowry turned in a 3-under-par 35-33=68 for his opening round of the PGA Championship.

The Irishman split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to five birdies against two bogeys. His most notable birdie dropped in from 12'1" at the par-4 first hole -- his 10th of the round -- but his longest conversion disappeared for par from 13'7" at the par-3 third. Lowry signed his card sitting three strokes back of the tri-leaders in the clubhouse.

Shane Lowry lit up Hoylake for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of The Open Championship to post 10-under 278, good for a share of ninth place.

Lowry was solid all day, picking up three birdies on the front nine and four more on the back. He held the clubhouse lead at the time he signed his card. This was the Irishman's third Open, having made the cut in each of his first two but failing to crack the top 30. He trended well into this event, with a T12 at the BMW International Open and a T4 at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open immediately prior to his trip to Royal Liverpool. His terrific finale clinched an exemption into next year's Open Championship at St. Andrews. The top 10 and ties receive automatic berths. The others: 1st--Rory McIlroy ... T2--Rickie Fowler; Sergio Garcia ... 4th--Jim Furyk ... T5--Marc Leishman; Adam Scott ... T7--Edoardo Molinari; Charl Schwartzel ... T9--Victor Dubuisson; Graeme McDowell.

Shane Lowry posted a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of The Open Championship, finishing four strokes adrift of pal Rory McIlroy's overnight lead.

Lowry went out in the fifth-to-last threesome at Royal Liverpool today, but he finished among the throng at T3 entering the second round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation overall, but sat 1-over at the turn following just one birdies offset by two bogeys. That's when he turned on the jets on the inward par 37. He converted five birdies, two of which on the three par 5s, in addition to birdies at the par-4 11th, 12th and 14th holes.

Shane Lowry made the cut in each of his first two appearances in The Open Championship and returns this week for a third try.

The Irishman has flashed some form of late, tying for fourth at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open last week after sharing 12th in the BMW International Open. He also finished alone in second at the BMW PGA CHAMPIONSHIP, which is the flagship event on the European Tour. Having grown up playing golf in Ireland, there's little doubt that he will feel quite at home at Royal Liverpool.

Shane Lowry cruised to medalist honors in today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Walton Heath in Surrey, England.

Lowry posted 8-under-par 69-67=136 to secure his second start in the season's second major. Fourteen golfers earned berths into Pinehurst. Runner-up honors at 7-under 137 were shared by Niclas Fasth (67-70), Garth Mulroy (69-68) and Simon Griffiths (67-70). Brooks Koepka (72-67), Marcel Siem (73-66), Graeme Storm (68-71), Maximilian Kieffer (68-71), Shiv Kapur (68-71) and Chris Doak (68-71) shared fifth place at 5-under 139. The final four spots were determined in a six-way playoff survived by Tom Lewis (4-under 71-69=140), Oliver Fisher (67-73), Andrea Pavan (71-69) and Lucas Bjerregaard (69-71). Danny Willett (70-70) and Morten Ørum Madsen (70-70) settled for first- and second-alternate status, respectively. Notables that failed to qualify include: 141--Matteo Manassero ... 142--George Coetzee ... 143--Robert Karlsson; Edoardo Molinari; Chris Wood ... 145--Richard Green ... 146--Padraig Harrington; José Maria Olazábal ... 148--Ross Fisher.
