Steady final round sees Shane Lowry finish one shot outside the top ten at The Open
A steady final round saw defending champions Shane Lowry finish one shot outside the top ten at The Open.
Shane finished on six under for the tournament in a tie for 12th place.
He started with five pars and finished with eight pars. In between those he had three birdies and two dropped shots for a one under par 69. It was another strong finish at a big tournament for the Offaly man this year. He finished fourth at the PGA Championship and eighth at The Players. He is in a very strong position to make this year's European Ryder Cup team.
The Open was won by Colin Morikawa who shot a bogey free four under par final round to finish two shots ahead of Jordan Speith and hour ahead of John Rahm and Louis Oosthuizen.
