Shane Lowry wants to cure his Masters hangover at RBC Heritage

Shane Lowry will have a chance to build on his Masters exploits and end his 1,000-day wait for his first win since The Open at RBC Heritage.

The world No. 30 finished third at the Augusta National behind Scottie Scheffler but has another chance to win again this week.

“I haven’t won in a couple of years, and I don’t enjoy not winning,” Lowry said as he reflected on the triple-bogey six in the fourth, which boosted his hopes of a win for the first time since he which Claret raised, Jug nullified in 2019. “I just love to play tournaments and win them.”

A low key compared to the Masters, this week’s $8 million tour stop at Harbor Town Golf Links is a good event for Lowry, who finished third in 2019 and ninth last year.

With 2013 champion Graeme McDowell and 15 of the world’s top 30 in action, it’s a high-profile field led by world No. 2 Collin Morikawa, who finished fifth in the Masters, and Australia’s Cameron Smith, who finished fifth in the Masters 12. Took sixth while chasing Scheffler last Sunday and finished third with Lowry.

“I feel like I’m one really good shot away from really fighting and that’s just how golf is,” Smith said.

“I feel like sometimes you can actually make really good golf shots and end up bogeys and doubles there. So, yeah, just a little frustrated.

“My game is good, I’m happy with how I handled the situation afterwards and yes I’m really looking forward to competing again this week. It’s in the rearview mirror now.”

In amateur golf, Charleville’s Jordan Boles used perfect scoring conditions to win the 18-hole qualifier for tomorrow’s Connolly’s Audi sponsored West of Ireland Amateur Championship in County Sligo.

The Cork golfer made six birdies and three bogeys in a three-under-par 68 to best the 22 qualifiers.

He finished a shot ahead of Co Sligo’s David Brady and Gerard Finnegan, Naas’ David Marshall Jnr, Portmarnock’s Brandon St John, Edmondstown’s Thomas Abom and Bundoran’s Michael McCaughey.

There was a four-way play-off for the last three spots in the field, which saw Ballinasloe’s Tom Cafferky, Co Sligo’s Rory Underwood and Cregmore Park’s Ronan O’Reilly take on Grange’s Jonathan Hayden at the second extra play-off hole after defeating them had tied on the 73rd.

Meanwhile, Douglas’ Jack Murphy beat Massereene’s Michael Wilson after a three-hole total to win the Leinster U16 Boys Open at Tullamore.
