Shane Lowry is one of seven players who can still win the Race to Dubai going into this week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship.
The Irishman needs a win or solo second to have a chance of becoming Europe's No. 1 but would also require top two Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett to finish worse than eighth and for Justin Rose, Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace not to win. Lowry made a dramatic leap when winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and has since finished T2 in the British Masters and solo eighth at the Turkish Airlines Open. However, with the finishing line in sight he's wobbled with T68 and T56 in his last two starts. Of more encouragement to gamers is his record at the Earth course which shows a fifth last year and another top 10 on debut in 2011. Nov 18 - 4:50 AM

Shane Lowry authored a final-round 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the British Masters at Woburn to finish joint runner-up on 13-under 271.

That was two swings behind winner Matt Fitzpatrick and left him tied for second spot with Soren Kjeldsen and Fabrizio Zanotti. The WGC-Bridgestone Invitational winner cut a frustrated figure for much of the day as he failed to convert a series of birdie chances and he'll feel this was one that got away. Lowry took another 31 putts today, having needed 34 on Friday and 33 yesterday. He missed just two greens in regulation in round four, picking up shots at 4, 6, 12, 15 and 17 while he swallowed his only bogey of the day at 14. "Gutted I couldn't get the job done," said Lowry on Twitter before revealing that he was now sitting down to watch Ireland v France in the Rugby Union World Cup.

Pre-tournament favorite Shane Lowry added a second-round 2-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 66 to reach 7-under 135 after 36 holes of the British Masters at Woburn.

Today's steady lap of the Marquess featured three birdies against a single bogey and nudged him up into the top five after the morning wave. Right now, he's just two shots behind joint leaders Matt Fitzpatrick and Soren Kjeldsen. Lowry picked up his first shot of the day on the short par-4 12th but had to settle for pars on the rest of the back nine. He added further birdies at 4 and 7 and dropped his only shot of the day on the par-3 6th. Given the confidence he must have from his WGC-Bridgestone Invitational win two months ago, Lowry still looks as if he could be the man to beat this weekend.

The UK bookmakers have installed Shane Lowry as the favorite for victory going into this week's British Masters at Woburn.

It's less than two months since Lowry elevated his career to a new level by winning the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in Ohio. In addition to that, the Irishman returned to action after a lengthy break by posting T19 in last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland where he shot 69-66-67 over the final 54 holes after a slow start. His record on English soil adds to his appeal for gamers as he's reeled off five top 10s in seven starts. The latest was T6 in May's BMW PGA Championship which, like this week's Marquess course at Woburn, is a tree-lined parkland course in the south of England.
Oct 5 - 3:22 PM

Despite hitting only 10 greens in regulation, Shane Lowry authored a marvelous display of golf in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, carding a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 to post 11-under 269, good for a two-stroke victory over Bubba Watson.

While Lowry is a first-time winner in his 29th PGA TOUR start, his effort today will be memorialized by a pair of ridiculous escapes from trouble. His first occurred at the par-4 10th where he lifted a wedge over trees from the rough well left of the fairway. Thanks to a great kick, his ball came to rest just 28 inches for birdie, which he converted. The Irishman's second occurred similarly at the par-4 18th where he found the left rough again and eventually buried a birdie from 11'1". His first two birdies rolled 17'2" and 11'9" at Nos. 2 and 8, respectively. While he's elevated on the global stage and his previously accumulated 222 non-member FedExCup points are now official, today's 550 FedExCup points earned will not count toward his membership total because they came in a WGC. It's a wrinkle in the bylaws to protect membership, but Lowry can add onto his official total at this week's PGA Championship.
Aug 9 - 6:16 PM

Shane Lowry painted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in round three of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and sits in solo third with 18 holes to play.

The big Irishman followed up his second-round 66 with a lap of Firestone CC that contained five birdies and two bogeys. Three of his conversions were from inside five feet while his longest was from 17'8". Those par breakers came at 2, 4, 11, 12 and 16 while his only sticky patch came with back-to-back bogeys at 13 and 14. Lowry continues to raise his profile in the U.S. with performances like this and, lying just two shots behind leaders Jim Furyk and Justin Rose, he's in position to post a first win in America and a first WGC victory. Today, he split only 7 (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens in regulation.
Aug 8 - 5:59 PM

Shane Lowry submitted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to post 4-under 136 at the midpoint, four shots back of Jim Furyk's 36-hole clubhouse lead.

At the time he signed his card, the Irishman sat alone in second place in Akron. He outbalanced a pair of bogey-5s at Firestone with six birdies, including conversions from 15'4" and 17'3" at Nos. 8 and 9, respectively. Lowry also rolled in a zero-putter birdie from the fringe six yards away at the par-3 15th. He even poured in a par save from 10'4" at the par-4 14th. His record in the WGCs is still a work in progress, but he's on pace to improve on a personal-best T17 at Trump National Doral earlier this year.
Aug 7 - 5:36 PM

Shane Lowry bogeyed his final two holes in an opening even-par 35-35=70 in round one of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone CC.

That's a disappointing way to finish but Lowry split just 6 (of 14) fairways on his opening lap. Indeed, driving into the rough led to his closing bogeys at 8 and 9 so it finally caught up with him. The Irishman started out with a birdie at 10 after a wedge to inside three feet and made his other par breakers at 2 and 4. Until his late slip, his only bogey had come at 15. This is a decent foundation, however, and puts him just three off the early lead. Lowry had started 78-78 and 72-76 on his only previous two starts in this event.
Aug 6 - 3:11 PM

Shane Lowry will make his third appearance in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club’s South Course this week.

He first tackled the tough par 70 at Akron, Ohio shortly after winning the Irish Open as an amateur in 2009 and predictably found it too big a leap, finishing T70 after opening with a pair of 78s. Lowry returned two years ago and shot 70-69 on the weekend so should be expected to make another leap this year. The Irishman has played some fine golf in the United States in 2015, highlighted by top 10s in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines and the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. He missed the cut at the Open Championship on his last start so will be highly motivated to put that disappointment behind him.
Aug 3 - 2:27 PM

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.

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.
Jun 21 - 12:35 AM

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.
Jun 19 - 6:20 PM

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.
Jun 16 - 4:22 AM

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.
