Shane Lowry

Lowry was born in Clara, County Offaly, the son of 1982 All-Ireland winning footballer Brendan Lowry. He learned his early golf at Esker Hills Golf Club, where he began his amateur career. He attended Athlone Institute of Technology as a scholarship student on the Higher Certificate in Sport and Recreation.
Lowry was the 2007 Irish Amateur Close Champion, defeating Niall Turner, 4 and 3, in the final. While still an amateur in May 2009, he won The Irish Open on the European Tour, defeating Robert Rock on the third hole of a sudden-death playoff. The win, in his tour debut, made him just the third amateur to win on the European Tour, following Danny Lee earlier in the 2009 season, and Pablo Martin in 2007. Lowry shot a 62 to equal the lowest-ever score by an amateur on the circuit and led from the second round onward. Walker Cup Captain Colin Dalgleish described the win as "fairytale stuff," adding, "You'd have to say that Shane's victory was the biggest (of the three amateur wins). To win your own national Open is quite something. It was unbelievable, it really was." The win was all the more remarkable because it was only the second home win since 1982 and the first since Padraig Harrington in 2007. Harrington himself was also full of praise: "It's fabulous for Irish golf. You only have to look at the fact it is such a rarity for an amateur to win, such a rarity for an Irish player to win the Irish Open."
Lowry elected to turn professional the week after his Irish Open triumph, meaning he would miss the opportunity to play at the Walker Cup in September. He made his professional debut in May at the European Open, missing the cut. Also missed the cut in his next two starts, finally cashing his first check when he finished 50th at the Open de France ALSTOM. He had his best professional result in November 2009, when he finished 3rd at the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament in Japan. In January 2010, he finished 4th at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, moving him into the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking.
In June 2010, Lowry qualified for his first major championship, the 2010 British Open at St. Andrews. During qualifying, he matched Nick Faldo's course record at Sunningdale when he posted a 62. Lowry made the cut at St. Andrews and eventually finished T-37th. He won for the first time as a professional at the 2012 Portugal Masters, where he shot 67 to tie for the lead with Englishman Ross Fisher, who bogeyed the final hole after missing a 4-foot putt. The victory elevated Lowry to 74th in the world, and he finished 29th in the Race to Dubai.
2013 Notes: Played in 21 events, had six top-10s. His best finish was T-3rd at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Ranked 36th in the Race to Dubai. Also played nine events on the PGA Tour, with one top-10 finish, a T-9th at the WGC-Accenture Match Play, where he lost to Graeme McDowell in the third round.
2014 Notes: Had a slow start, missing the cut in six of his first eight starts. Bounced back to finish runner-up to Rory McIlroy at the BMW PGA Championship. Seven weeks later, finished T-4th at the Aberdeen Asset Scottish Open, then T-9th at the British Open. Finished T-2nd at the Handa Wales Open, just a shot behind winner Joost Luiten. Played in 25 events on the European Tour and placed 10th in the Race to Dubai. Finished the year with a 5th-place result at the DP World Championship, Dubai.
2015 Notes: Placed T-7th at the Farmers Insurance Open, then T-6th at the BMW PGA Championship, followed by a T-9th at the U.S. Open. Lowry entered the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone two shots off the lead before firing a bogey-free 66 to claim a two-shot win over Bubba Watson. Lowry saved the best for last as his tee shot at No. 18 went deep into the left rough. His second shot rattled 141 yards through the trees and landed 11 feet, 1 inch away from the hole. Lowry drained the putt for birdie to seal the win. Earned his first career PGA Tour victory in his 28th start at age 28 years, 4 months and 7 days, earning a three-year exemption on the PGA Tour through the 2017-18 season. During the rest of the European Tour, he finished T-2nd at the British Masters, two shots behind winner Matthew Fitzpatrick. He was 8th at the Turkish Airlines Open and finished the year 5th in the Race to Dubai.
2016 Notes: Finished T-6th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Entered the final round of the U.S. Open with a four-shot lead over Dustin Johnson and Andrew Landry, but struggled to a 6-over 76 to finish T-2nd. Became the first player to lead a U.S. Open by four shots or more and not win since Payne Stewart in 1998 (led by four over Tom Lehman and Bob Tway). Made 17 PGA Tour starts with two top-10 finishes. He was 102nd in the FedExCup standings and 67th in the money list. On the European Tour, played in 15 events with just one top-10 (U.S. Open). Placed 30th in the Race to Dubai. Finished T-9th at the ISPS Handa World Cup with teammate Graeme McDowell on the Ireland team at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Australia in late November.
2017 Notes: Played 16 events on the PGA Tour, making 11 cuts. Had one top-10, a T-7th at the Wyndham Championship. Finished 127th in the FedExCup standings. On the European Tour, he played 16 events, making 14 starts. Ended his season with a T-2nd finish at the DP World Tour Championship, a shot behind winner Jon Rahm. Was T-6th at the BMW PGA Championship, 7th at the British Masters and T-8th at the Turkish Airlines Open. Finished 22nd in the Race to Dubai.
2018 Notes: Played 13 European Tour events and made 13 cuts, with two top-10 finishes. Competed in 19 events on the PGA Tour, making 13 cuts with no top-10 results. Finished 140th in the FedExCup standings. His first top-10 was a 6th-place finish at the Portugal Masters in October. Was runner-up to Sergio Garcia at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters.
2019 Notes: Started his year on the right foot with a win at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. Made a birdie at the 72nd hole for a one-shot win over Richard Sterne. Was T-3rd at the RBC Heritage. Opened the week with scores of 65-68 to hold the outright lead after each of the first two rounds but shot 71-70 over the weekend. After opening up with a first-round 75 in the PGA Championship, shot 69-68-69 to finish T-8th. Shot 66-67 on the weekend to finish T-2nd at the RBC Canadian Open. It was his second runner-up finish on the PGA Tour and his best finish since winning the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
