What a boost for golf in Ireland – Shane Lowry’s magnificent win last Sunday in the World Golf Championship- - Bridgestone International at Bridgestone.
Just over 14 months ago Shane was langushing at 142nd in the world rankings – with his Bridgestone win coupled with some excellent results in the last 12 months, Shane is now up to a career high of 19th in the world rankings. We all took pride in 2009 when as an amateur he won The Irish Open at Co. Louth (Baltray) G.C. Shane was a team mate of Rory McIlroys when Ireland won the European Amateur team Championships on two occasions. We now eagerly await look forward to The PGA at Whistling Straights to see both compete again on the worls stage.
To Shane, his team and his family we convey our heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the future.
