A prestigious talent, Shane Lowry has finally made himself known on the big stage.
Shane Lowry has produced a miraculous finish to win the WGC Bridgestone Invitational to announce himself on the world stage and claim the US$1,570,000 winner’s purse/.
The Irish have been talking up the Lowry for many years and for some time it seemed as if his prestigious talent may be going to waste. Lowry carded a bogey-free 4-under 66 final round to win the the biggest tournament of his career this morning, beating Bubba Watson by two shots.
Lowry’s final round was full of highlights, none more amazing than his recovery shot on the 18th hole to set up a closing birdie.
Lowry pulled his tee shot into the trees and faced a gap wedge over the trees to the green. The big Irishman pulled the shot slightly and somehow it managed to get through the trees lining the green and settle 10 feet from the hole.
Jason Day was the best of the Australians in 12th place, eight shots behind Lowry. And if you need another awesome highlight from Shane Lowry’s round today – check out this video of Lowry’s amazing recovery shot over trees on the 10th hole.
