Shane Lowry had to putt with his wedge and driver in the second round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open but muddled through and will survive the cut.
The 2009 winner of this event started the day at 1-over and is believed to have snapped his putter at the 12th, his third hole of the day, after taking a bogey-6. After swallowing three more bogeys in his next five holes, a weekend off looked more than likely but credit to him for digging deep, finding three birdies against two bogeys on his second nine and returning a 3-over-par 40-35=75 to post 4-over 146. As it stands, that's currently T58 but it's getting better as the afternoon goes on with the mixed weather making scoring conditions extremely tough at Royal County Down. The top 65 and ties play the final two rounds so gamers who pinned their hopes on Lowry will be okay. In fact, he's only seven off the clubhouse lead so can't be ruled out of a title bid yet, especially when he gets a proper putter back in his hands. Today he split 10 (of 14) fairways, found 11 greens in regulation, was 2-for-7 scrambling and took 32 putts. May 29 - 9:08 AM

Shane Lowry will hope to win his home Dubai Duty Free Irish Open for a second time when he does battle at Royal County Down this week.

Lowry has already written one of the most amazing chapters in the tournament's history after winning the 2009 event at County Louth as an amateur. That was a shock to most although some shrewd punters with local connections had money on their fellow Irishman at 500/1. Lowry was also T5 at Carton House in 2013 and, unlike many in the field, won't mind the windy weather forecast this week. Having warmed up with a T6 at Wentworth on Sunday, he's a must for fantasy managers.

Shane Lowry recovered from a lacklustre opening round 74 to shoot a 5-under-par 32-35=67 on day two of the BMW PGA Championship.

The Wentworth course specialist is back on track again after going 5-for-5 in scrambling, keeping a bogey off his card and making full use of his five birdies. Lowry, who was runner-up here last year, T12 in 2013 and T4 in 2011, will go into the weekend at 3-under 141. That's seven behind leader Francesco Molinari but he has momentum after a jump of over 60 places up the leaderboard on Friday. The Irishman made his five birdies in the first 12 holes and split 9 (of 14) fairways during his morning lap.

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.

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.
Apr 27 - 6:09 PM

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.
Mar 18 - 5:20 PM

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.
