The Offaly jerseys have arrived as Lowry leads the way in Abu Dhabi
The well-travelled Offaly jersey has once again turned up on the opposite side of the world as Shane Lowry blazes a trail at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in the UAE.
The Clara man had just put the finishing touches to his third round, leaving him in a three-shot lead heading into the final day, when he bumped into one of his youngest fans. He went on to win the tournament in a dramatic final round.
A lucky fan and his young child caught Shane's attention as he headed back to the clubhouse to sign his card, causing him to stop and pose for a photograph. See the heartwarming exchange below:

The young Lowry fan was sporting a half-and-half Offaly and Kerry jersey. Lowry has been attracting huge support with his scintillating performance in Abu Dhabi this week.
He also handed the baby's dad a golf ball as a souvenir.
The man is a gent!
Shane will complete the tournament on Saturday morning, commencing his final round with a three-shot lead.
