Shane returning the Claret Jug

Offaly golfer Shane Lowry has officially handed back the Claret Jug trophy after two years.

Lowry got to hold onto the trophy longer than most champions having won in 2019 and the 2020 event being cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions at the time.

He won his title at Royal Portrush two years ago, sparking brilliant celebrations in his home town of Clara. The trophy was renamed unofficially to the Clara Jug for its stay.

Shane will tee off in defence of his title on Thursday at Royal St Georges and he can't wait. Watch him speak ahead of the tournament below:
