‘Fortuitous But Incredible’


Certain golf shots can define your career, just ask Jean Van De Velde.

In 2015, County Offaly native, Shane Lowry, after a day of Houdiniesque escapes, produced one – a wondrous wedge from what Lowry himself described as “a pretty horrific lie”.

127 yards to carry, from the rough, over a tall tree and a bunker to a pin cut tight left, was it on? Of course it was on, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and another life changing moment was the prize.
