Shane Lowry

Lowry grew up 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. In July 2019, he achieved the ultimate dream of any golfing Irishman by winning the British Open.
To make the vision more grand, he won it on Irish soil at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, the first time the championship was held outside of England and Scotland since 1951. He joined Padraig Harrington as only the second major champion from the Republic of Ireland.
Lowry was the 2007 Irish Amateur Close Champion, defeating Niall Turner, 4 & 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 to date 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 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 a final-round 66 and won when Englishman Ross Fisher bogeyed the final hole after missing a 4-foot putt. The victory elevated Lowry to 74th in the Official World Golf Rankings.

It was his second runner-up finish on the PGA Tour and his best finish since winning the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. A month later, showed up at Royal Portrush, looking for a change of fortune. Had missed the cut in his last four British Open starts and in his last 18 major starts, missed 10 cuts.
