SHANE Lowry finished another strong four days of golf in fifth place in the Iberdrola Open in Majorca.

SHANE Lowry finished another strong four days of golf in fifth place in the Iberdrola Open in Majorca.

A final round of four over par 74 dropped him slightly down the leaderboard but it was another strong finish for the Offaly golfer who is right on form after missing the start of the year through injury.

His final round started badly dropping three shots in his first two holes but a run of four birdies in five holes around the turn got him right back in contention.

Unfortunatley for Shane, on a day of high scoring all around, he dropped five shots in his last eight holes to finish in a tie for fifth.

The tournament was won by Darren Clarke.
