Bigger question - who will be our next Major winner?
  • Paul Dunne
  • Gavin Moynihan
  • Robin Dawson
  • Sugre
  • Michael Hoey
  • Cormac Sharvin
  • Seamus Power
  • Tom McKibbin
  • Someone else?
Leona Maguire?

Lowry won it on the first hole today. Or more accurately, didn't lose it on the first hole. If he had double bogeyed (which looked likely) and Fleetwood birdied (which looked doable), it was immediately down to a one-shot match. Psychologically he would have been burst as well.

At no point did Fleetwood ever give off the air of being a man who was hunting Lowry down. He created chances but was hoping the door would open rather than kicking it down.

Lowry is very much in the mould of the great Offaly hurling and football players of glory days past. Modest, doesn't take himself too seriously, enjoys his sport but keeps it in perspective.

Should be a few great nights in Clara.

Attitude now he reckons has fixed our Rory. Lowry will win a major before he wins another one, if he ever does. He is lacking heart because he has no allegiance to anything meaningful and doesn't have any inbuilt belief.

 “Some of the times, it will go wrong, and so you have to be that character to, you know, you’re going to take a shot on, it won’t work out, but you can’t second guess yourself afterwards.

“You have to have that mentality that you have to believe that your strategy is it, that you are the man, that 100% it’s all about your strategy. You’ve got to believe in yourself.” P.H


Shane?

Shane McGowan has a better chance ffs

Don’t take the advice of a person who plays once a year! I’m glad I didn’t take mine.
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

What a great day he gave us yesterday.  The weather tried it's best to dampen the spirits but couldn't manage it. In truth, he won it on Saturday and at the first hole yesterday.

Watching him come up the 18th was spine tingling stuff.

Hopefully the expressions of support from the Irish population for Lowry will dispel the myth of the 'typical Irish begrudgery' that some empty vessels love to spout around here.  He couldn't have been better supported by his own people.

Some cracking posts on the golf thread about Lowry's chances from the usual board know-it-alls.  Better to remain silent... and all that...  ;D
