On-Fire Shane Lowry Breaks Nine Hole Record In 1st Round At Sawgrass

On-Fire Shane Lowry Breaks Nine Hole Record In 1st Round At Sawgrass
By Conor Neville Updated

After an unexplosive opening, Shane Lowry tore it up on the back nine at Sawgrass today. He hit a course record 29 to head for the clubhouse at 65.

Five birdies and an eagle after the turn took him to -7.

He might have been confident that this would put in the lead after Round 1 but Jason Day proceeded to equal the course record with a 63.

Day leads the Players Championship (*insert obligatory reference to its status as the 'fifth major) by two shots from Lowry, Bill Haas and Cameron Tringale.

Oddly enough, Lowry felt out of sorts all week. According to Jason Sobel, it was a tip from Graeme McDowell which righted things.

Most encouragingly, someone in Google has finally twigged that Shane Lowry the golfer is not the same man as Shane Lowry the Australian Rules Footballer and have changed his nationality accordingly.
