Shane Lowry will look to build on his recent Houston Open finish as he preps for this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans, paired with fellow countryman Padraig Harrington.
Lowry has been quiet this season, starting with a 4-for-7 record and nothing better than a T43. That all changed in his most recent start, posting a T14 at the Houston Open. That is a promising sign for the Irishman who moved to 174th in the FedExCup race with that finish. He still has a long way to go if he wants to retain his PGA TOUR card since his exemption from winning the WGC-Bridgestone runs out at the end of this season. Joining Lowry this week in the team format will be Padraig Harrington. Neither of them played in last year's edition so the team format will be new for them. Lowry did go 2-0-0 in team play during the 2016 EurAsia Cup. Apr 23 - 4:29 PM

World No. 77 Shane Lowry authored a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the Houston Open for a 36-hole tally of 8-under 136, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T7, three in arrears of clubhouse leader Beau Hossler. UPDATE: With play completed, Lowry is T11.

The 30-year-old opened with a five-birdie, one-bogey 68 and repeated that feat in Round 2. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 0.648 strokes off-the-tee and 2.146 approaching-the-green. The Irishman's birdies came at holes 1, 3, 11, 14 and 15, three from between 12 and 18 feet, camouflaging a lone bogey-6 at 8. He registered 1.733 putts per GIR and 0.617 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.

Shane Lowry looks to kick his season into high gear as he turns his attention toward this week's Houston Open.

The Irishman is just 4-for-7 on the season to find himself outside the top 190 in the FedExCup standings. With his PGA TOUR status running out at the end of season, he will need to start posting some good finishes or else he'll head back to Europe full-time. Making his third start at this week's course, he is 0-for-2 here with just one round in red numbers. Lowry has lost strokes putting in seven straight starts, making him a bit of a wildcard heading into the week.

Shane Lowry loads his quiver in anticipation of this week's Farmers Insurance Open in La Jolla, California.

The Irishman has been dormant since a runner-up finish at the European Tour's season-ending championship in November. It was a nice ending to a somewhat-down year that saw him drop nearly 20 spots in the OWGR. In fact, he finished on a tear of four straight top 15s to salvage the season. Making his first start in over two months, we can't rule out rust, but the upside is there for gamers looking for an under-the-radar option this week at Torrey Pines. This will be Lowry's fourth straight appearance at the Farmers, with top 15s in two of his last three visits.

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."

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
