Brilliant second round shoots Shane Lowry up the leaderboard at DP World Tour Championship in Dubai
A brilliant second round has shot Shane Lowry up the leaderboard at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
The Offaly man shot a seven under par second round with five birdies, an eagle and no dropped shots to move on to ten under par for the tournament which is the culmination of the European Tour's Race To Dubai.
It leaves him in a tie for the lead going into the weekend alongside John Catlin and Sam Horsfield with Alexander Bjork and Rory McIlroy a shot further back.
Speaking after his round, Shane commented, "Obviously four shots better today than yesterday, but bogeyed the last yesterday. And suppose when I chipped in on 14 was a huge boost today and holed a couple more putts. Felt like a fairly straightforward, 10-under first two rounds.
“I feel like my game is in good shape and I feel like I know my way around this place and I know how to play here. I'm happy to be atop of the leaderboard, late tee time tomorrow and I'm looking forward to the weekend.
“Just keep doing what I'm doing. For me personally, it's two more days left and then end of a long year and a half, I suppose, long couple years. I'm looking forward to giving everything and leaving it on the course this weekend and hopefully I'm there near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday afternoon.”
Included in his round was this incredible flop shot.
He also made the day of this young golf fan in Dubai.
