Shane Lowry Biography – Shane Lowry Wiki
Shane Lowry is an Irish professional golfer who plays on the European Tour and the PGA Tour. He turned professional the week after his The 3 Irish Open triumph on 17 May 2009.

On the European Tour, he won the Portugal Masters in October 2012 and the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA in 2019.
Born in Clara, County Offaly, Ireland, Shane started playing golf at age 12. He taught himself how to play as his family focused on other sports, according to his biography on his official website.
“When I was a kid, I spent my summers playing pitch and putt on the local course with my mates. It was there, in Clara, Co. Offaly, that I learned the basics and honed my short game without even knowing it. I started playing golf proper when I was 12. My family wasn’t really into golf, so I taught myself how to play. I took every chance I had to get out on the course. I can’t say it didn’t frustrate my family and teachers a bit back then. I think they’ve forgiven me now though.”
Shane was the 2007 Irish Amateur Close Champion. He was part of the Irish teams winning the European Amateur Team Championship in 2007 and 2008. In May 2009, he won The Irish Open at County Louth Golf Club on the European Tour.
