Congrats to big Lowry!  Seems like a total gent.

Also, this thread is 100% irrefutable proof that Irish people do not automatically hate successful Irish people.

Glad that hogwash argument is finally settled.

Great win for Shane - showed great mental strength to come back from 4 down twith 7 to play to win by one.  -11 for the par 3's for the week - european record.   Wire to wire winner - back inside the top 50 in the world which should be odds on for entry into the Masters - the only downside is I had 20 quid on him before the start to win @ 50/1 - cashed out for £300 just before he drove it into the water on 9 - still a tidy profit but I should have kept my belief in the big man...some of his clutch putting and shot on the back 9 were right out of the top drawer - especially the pitch and putt on 17 to make par and the tee shot and 3 wood second shot on 18 were world class

Fair play to Lowry.

Even better is Conor Purcellís win in the Australian Amateur Open though.

They never lost the Masters, just the USPGA.

Never lost them - but the rights were up for grabs. They signed a new deal to keep them.

Is there any word of sorting out the shit coverage with Augusta National which endures for so much over the whole weekend??!!

AFAIK Augusta supply the feed. I don't think the broadcasters can do much about that.
