Shane Lowry – the amateur golfer from Offaly – has just outlasted a valiant attempt by England’s Robert Rock to win the 3 Irish Open at Baltray on the 4th playoff hole. Fair bowls to ya Shane !
I had never heard of him before this week but he led the tournament from pillar to post and deserves it. He didn’t do the nerves of the nation much good when he missed from 3 feet in regulation for the title but made up for it later when he capitalised on Rock’s over-hit chip and missed putt on the 4th extra hole.
Well done Shane … we’re proud of you ! The only downside is that both RTE and Sky cut away from coverage before the presentation (by Brian someone ?) as the game had gone on so long …
