The Offaly golfer shot an opening round of 3 under par on the North Course which saw him finish the opening round in a tie for 15th place.

Lowry was level par to the turn but dropped a shot on the tenth hole to drop to 1 over par. However he finished the round strongly with birdies on the 11th, 12th, 14th and 17th to move into the top 20. 

Tony Finau leads on 7 under par with Ted Potter and Ryan Palmer a shot further back. 

Seamus Power is also on 3 under with Padraig Harrington on level par after his opening round.
