Shane Lowry aiming for major success at this week's US Open

Shane Lowry

Offaly's Shane Lowry is hoping for a big performance at this week's US Open at Shinnecock Hills after a solid display last week at the St Jude Classic. 

The Clara man finished inside the Top 30 last week, and although issues with his short game persisted, he produced one of his better four days of golf of the year to date.

He qualified for the US Open, a tournament he finished as runner-up in 2016, last month, and will be aiming for the first major victory of his career. He is an 80/1 shot with the bookies.

Lowry will play alongside South Korean Byeong Hun An and American Chez Reavie for the first two rounds and tees off on his first round on Thursday at 7.09pm (Irish Time).
