Fan Saves Day By Caddying During Shane Lowry's Final Round At Canadian Open

Fan Saves Day By Caddying During Shane Lowry's Final Round At Canadian Open

It has been a busy week for Shane Lowry at the Canadian Open in Hamilton, Ontario for a variety of reasons just weeks after he made history at the PGA Championship.

The proud Offaly man has failed to contend like he did at the venue back in 2019 - when he came second - but did fight to make the cut in another solid weekend's work.

He was in the headlines earlier this week for his well-structured sentiments following the sudden passing of fellow PGA Tour winner Grayson Murray, who sadly took his own life last weekend.

In more positive news, Lowry's beloved Offaly GAA claimed a historic All-Ireland U20 Championship final win against Tipperary - something he has been openly overjoyed at on his social media channels.

He is tied for 40th at the time of writing in his Sunday showing in Canada as he looks to surge up the leaderboard.

While his performance will not rank among his most remarkable, his Sunday round might live long in the memory albeit for a bizarre reason.

Lowry, accompanied by caddie Darren Reynolds, played alongside Taiwanese golfer CT Pan on Sunday in slippery conditions on an overcast day in Hamilton.


However, a problem arose on the third hole when Pan's caddie Mike 'Fluff' Cowen slipped and fell, injuring himself in the process.

The veteran caddie was unable to continue, but thankfully one spectator volunteered to step in and carry Pan's bag.

He put on Cowan's caddie bib and made his way to Pan, but not before being greeted by both Lowry and Reynolds on the course.



It would go on to be a collborative effort, with the first fan bowing out as multiple other spectators got their go at carrying Pan's bag.

Lowry fired a quip upon meeting the fourth volunteer of the day.

Fourth caddie!? That's a f**king record now!"


Bizarre scenes.

Perhaps it will relax Lowry as he looks to claim a clinical end to his Canadian Open effort and continue his momentum into the US Open.
