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. Sep 22 - 8:11 AM

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.
Jun 2 - 2:16 PM

Shane Lowry showed his liking for Wentworth again with a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the BMW PGA Championship, good enough for a top five place in the clubhouse and just a shot behind leaders Scott Jamieson, Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Francesco Molinari.

Lowry has three top six finishes in this event, including second place in 2014, and regards it as one of his favorite venues in golf. The Irishman arrived this year in mixed form after missing cuts at Augusta National and Sawgrass but a top 25 at the Wells Fargo suggested he wasn't too far away. Back in the familiar surroundings of Wentworth, he posted his fifth sub-70 round in the last six laps of the parkland English course with six birdies against two bogeys. Lowry opened his account with back-to-back gains at 5 and 6 but then gave both shots back with consecutive bogeys at 8 and 9. He recovered in some style after a trio of birdies at 10, 11 and 12 and missed a good chance for another at 17. However, two big blows set up an eagle opportunity at the last and he two-putted for a birdie to end a sunny day on the revamped West Course a single stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Shane Lowry is off to a flying start at the RBC Heritage, following a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during his opening lap of Harbour Town Golf Links, staking out a spot just one shy of early leader Luke Donald. UPDATE: Donald would later get passed by Bud Cauley who shot a bogey-free, 8-under 63, placing Lowry three off the pace.

The Irishman is getting his first look at Harbour Town GL this week, but had no troubles getting adjusted in round one. His primary scoring tool was the flat stick today, splashing home three birdie bombs from outside 20 feet. The longest coming at the closing, par-4 18th to close his day with a 58'1" splash. It wasn't his only method of scoring though, one example coming at the par-4 sixth hole where he stuck his 150-yard approach to 23 inches for a stress-free birdie. Lowry is coming off a missed cut at the Masters, despite starting strong to position himself T12 after round one. He ballooned with a 7-over 79 in round two, so tomorrow's round should have his full attention as he looks to avoid the same fate for a second straight week.

Shane Lowry’s memories of the Masters will focus on last year’s bright start when he heads down Magnolia Lane to tee it up at Augusta National Golf Club.

When he pegged T9 at the 2014 British Open, then T9 and T2 at the 2015 and 2016 U.S. Opens the Irishman looked ready to join his many compatriots in being a major contender. But the disappointment of that latter result seemed to hit him hard and he has no top ten finish in 16 starts since. It reflects his performance here 12 months ago. He had missed the cut on his only previous visit to ANGC, but opened with 68 for T2, only to then limp home with rounds of 76-79-75. Toss in that earlier appearance and he’s only broken 75 twice in six laps. He has a fine short game, but found only half the greens in regulation in 2015 and just 58.3% last year (44th). Struggled last time out in the WGC World Match Play and withdrew from the Genesis Open when set to miss the cut during a long weather delay. Before then posted top 20s at Pebble Beach and Scottsdale.
Apr 4 - 5:43 AM

Shane Lowry exchanged heavy blows with World No. 10 Sergio Garcia, escaping with a halved match during the opening round of group play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The Irishman arrived with a less-than-stellar career match play record, just 5-10-1 heading into the week (3-5-1 at the WGC-Match Play). The clear highlight was a first-round upset of Rory McIlroy back at the 2013 edition of this event. Lowry traded two birdies with two bogeys on the front nine today, finding himself with a 1-up lead at the turn. The Irishman would maintain control of the match all the way up to the closing par 4. After Garcia secured his par, Lowry stood over a 5'7" putt to halve the hole (and win the match). Instead, the Irishman knocked it by the cup to end the match all square, giving each golfer half a point for their efforts. Lowry will take on Jon Rahm in round two, tomorrow.
Mar 22 - 8:07 PM

Shane Lowry will make a fourth appearance in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play when he tees it up at Austin Country Club in Texas later this week.

The Irishman owns a distinctly poor career singles record of 5-10-1, although most of the damage has been done in the the EurAsia Cup and Volvo World Match Play (in this tournament he is 4-4-1). On the bright side, he has downed both Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell in the tournament (not just players with strong match play reputations, but matches that would have meant much to both men due to friendship and national kinship), but last year at this course he managed just half a point in his three group matches. He was last seen withdrawing from the Genesis Open (he opted out when unlikely to make the cut after a lengthy weather delay) – before then he had notched top 20 finishes in both the Farmers Insurance Open and AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-am. He's drawn in Group 7, facing a double Spanish duo of Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm, plus tough nut Kevin Chappell.
Mar 20 - 12:07 PM

Taking on Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course, Shane Lowry tiptoed his way to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 32-36=68 during round two of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, arriving at the midpoint with a share of eighth place on 5-under 138.

When tough weather conditions hit an event, it can really turn into a grind. That's exactly what the Irishman is doing so far, grinding. He battled through the toughest weather in round one at Pebble Beach Golf Links, trading six birdies with four bogeys. On Friday, the weather was a bit calmer and so was Lowry's scorecard. He circled just three birdies in round two, but he maintained a clean card throughout to help him rise one spot on the leaderboard. Next up for the sizable Irishman is a round-three tee time later today at Spyglass Hill Golf Course.
Feb 11 - 12:56 PM

Shane Lowry returns from an eight-week recess as he preps for this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

The Irishman has been dormant since a T19 at the DP World Tour Championship in November. Like always, he takes a nice break after the season to recharge his batteries. Those long layoffs have never hindered his success at the Farmers as he's posted a T13 and T7 in two visits. Lowry's lone PGA TOUR win came at Firestone Country Club, a bulky layout much like Torrey Pines South. Course history buffs should give Lowry a long look this week when setting their tournament rosters.
Jan 25 - 2:44 PM

Shane Lowry will be seeking a third top ten finish in the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai at Jumeirah Golf Estates this week.

The last two years have seen the Irishman open his Earth Course account in vastly different fashion. Back in 2014 a lap of 66 earned him the first round lead; 12 months later an initial tour of 75 had him languishing T54. It's typical because his four visits have a split personality: T8 and T5 the good Shane, T39 and T48 the bad Shane. Given that this season promised so much you have to think he'll be looking forward to pressing refresh over the winter. Since a last round 76 saw him blow the U.S. Open lead he finished T36 on defense of his Bridgestone Invitational title and then missed four weekends on the bounce. He's recovered to go 5-for-5 in recent weeks and was T8 after 54 holes of the WGC-HSBC Champions. So there are signs of recovery, but it might be that a good rest will be needed before he truly recovers the zip of the last two seasons.

Shane Lowry vaulted up the leaderbaord during round three of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, styling a 7-under-par 32-33=65 to reach 9-under 207 on the week.

For the third straight day, the Irishman improved his GIR tallies (11→15→17). Missing just one green in regulation, Lowry had plenty of good looks at birdie and he capitalized. On the front nine he opened with a bogey before circling five birdies. After the turn he added three more birdies, reaching 15 on the week. Lowry posted a 6-under 66 in his very first round at Sheshan International (2009) but hasn't found anything better than 4-under 68 since, until now. The 29-year-old will enter the finale eight shots off the leader Hideki Matsuyama, but a mere five shot out of second place.

Shane Lowry slots in at 24th on the Race to Dubai ahead of his fifth start at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China this week.

The Irishman has finished 5th (2015) and 10th (2014) on Europe's money list in the last two seasons so is a little short of that so far. Over 50% of his earnings in 2016 came via T2 at the U.S. Open although the manner of that result (he was four clear with 18 to play) certainly knocked him for a while and he missed his next three cuts. Lowry has made something of a recovery with T24-T18-T41 in his latest three starts. At this week's event, he shot 66 on his very first lap of Sheshan International GC in 2009 before finishing T28 but he hasn't beaten that since with T34 in 2014 and T68 last year. He also took part in the 2012 edition at Mission Hills, again starting with a 66 before falling to T32. This week he'll be attempting to win his second WGC event having landed the Bridgestone Invitational last year.
