Shane Lowry back in action at this week's Houston Open

Shane Lowry moved up in the Official World Golf Rankings and the FedEx Cup after finishing third at the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town on the PGA Tour.

He finished on -10 for the tournament, two behind winner, CT Pan. Shane had a strong front nine and went to the turn in the lead on -11 having sunk three birdies, including this fantastic putt on the sixth.

However a dropped shot on nine and a double bogey on 12 after a wayward tee-shot dropped him back. However Shane continued to battle down the stretch and birdied the 14th. He gave himself other opportunities and was unlucky not to birdie 13 and 17. 

Ultimately he finished in third which moved him up to 43rd in the Official World Golf Rankings and 125th in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Standings.
