Lowry Wins – Thanks To Leprechauns And Irish Clovers!

With all of Irish folklore behind him and all of Ireland rooting for him, there was no way that he could not win!

This was the force, combined with his skill and talent that helped him lift the 2019 Open title.

Ireland’s Shane Lowry (pictured) claimed a first major championship win with a dominant six-shot victory on 15-under par as Ireland plunged into celebration.

The 32-year old maintained his calm in the wind and rain to shoot a one-over 72, with Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, coming in second on 9-under.

American Tony Finau battled to a one-over-par 71 finish to end third on 7-under, his best finish at a major.

England’s Lee Westwood carded a two-over 73 for a share of fourth that guarantees him a place at next year’s Masters. He finished 6-under overall alongside world number one Brooks Koepka who struggled to a 74.

The best performance by an Asian was turned in by South Korea’s Sang Hyun Park who carded a final round two-over-par 72 to be tied for 16th place.
