Shane Lowry continued on his merry way at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open with a second successive 4-under-par 33-33=66 and, at 8-under 132, is tied for the lead at the midpoint.
With top 10s in each of his last four starts in Scotland and a T9 at the U.S. Open, it's no surprise to see Lowry in the mix here. He showed his links prowess again today by hitting 15 greens in regulation and taking his scrambling stats to 7-for-8 after 36 holes. The Irishman picked up birdies at steady intervals, circling red at 2, 5, 11, 14 and 16. His dropped shot at the par-4 15th is his only bogey of the week so far. For now, he's tied for the clubhouse lead with defending champion Justin Rose and Sweden's Johan Carlsson. Jul 10 - 8:48 AM

The top 10 and ties at Chambers Bay have punched tickets for the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.

While only one guy enjoys the spoils for winning this tournament, others can bask in the comfort of knowing that they're not leaving it with empty hands. Jordan Spieth collected a 10-year exemption into the U.S. Open today. Ten others can schedule a trip to western Pennsylvania a year from now. This includes Shane Lowry, who closed with a 1-over-par 37-34=71, landing at even-par 280. It's his best finish in this event in three tries and it matches his career best in a major (2014 Open Championship) in 10 starts. The other qualifiers into the 2016 U.S. Open are as follows: T2--Dustin Johnson; Louis Oosthuizen ... T4--Branden Grace; Adam Scott; Cameron Smith ... 7th--Charl Schwartzel ... 8th--Brandt Snedeker ... T9--Jason Day; Rory McIlroy.

Shane Lowry navigated his way to an even-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the 115th U.S. Open and at 1-under 209, sits three shots back of the 54-hole leaders.

Lowry began Moving Day at 1-under (T12), and four shots back of the 36-hole co-leaders. On his round he striped 13 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation, recording a 1.72 putts per GIR against a field average of 1.83. For his efforts, the Irishman exchanged three birdies with three bogeys, but it was good enough to move him up seven spots into a four-way tie for fifth. The 28-year-old, who missed the cut in his two previous U.S. Open appearances (2014, 2011), circled his birdies on Nos. 6, 9 and 10 with his 12-footer on the ninth his longest conversion on the day. Two of his squares came at two of the three shortest (and hence scoreable) par 4s, and he also failed to birdie either of the par 5s for the first time in the tournament. Nonetheless, Lowry, a two-time winner on the European Tour, sits in prime position to pick off his first major and for nothing else, add another top 10 to augment his T9-finish at the 2014 Open Championship.

With a walk-off birdie at 18, Shane Lowry posted 1-under 139 at the halfway mark of the U.S. Open after an even-par 35-35=70 in Friday's second round.

The Irishman is enjoying his time at Chambers Bay and sits just four shots behind clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth. Lowry circled birdies at 5 and 8 against a bogey at 6 to turn in even par and was steady on the back nine until swallowing a double bogey-6 at 14. He dug in with three straights pars and returned to red figures with a rare bogey at the last, a hole changed from a par 5 to a par 4 today. He's slightly below the field average in terms of fairways hit but has found 75% greens in regulation so far.

Shane Lowry attempts to make his first U.S. Open cut when he heads to Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington this week.

The Irishman missed the cut at Congressional in 2011 and again at Pinehurst last year although this looks a golden chance for him to play all four rounds and even make a title challenge. Lowry, who grew up in Ireland, is something of a links specialist so this week's course could be a great fit given the fescue grass, lack of trees, wide fairways and undulating greens with run-offs and slopes. Gamers should also take note that Lowry played some impressive golf on the west coast earlier this year, finishing T7 at Torrey Pines and T21 at Pebble Beach. Of course, both venues have been used in recent U.S. Opens. As for notable recent form, he posted a T6 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth last month.

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.

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.
May 26 - 6:05 PM

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.
