Shane Lowry Makes Plea For Irish Fans To Bring Sliotars To Augusta

Shane Lowry Makes Plea For Irish Fans To Bring Sliotars To Augusta

You may remember that Shane Lowry briefly wreathed Augusta National in glory last year with a hole in one on the 16th hole of the final round. It was a wonderful end to the tournament for Lowry, after beginning the competition with the ignominy of being called "Stephen McLowry" by a US TV presenter.

Lowry is back at Augusta this week, aiming to be the first Irishman to ever don the Green Jacket, and has been telling the Irish Independent of the entirely unsurprising way he unwinds ahead of a Major competition: hurling.

He and his mates have been having a puck-around at Augusta, but owing to some errant shooting, he is almost out of sliotars:

We burst one off the road and we've lost another one. We have only one left. If anyone coming over tomorrow could bring over a few, it would be great! It's something to do.

I wouldn't be doing too much with it now; I wouldn't be trying to catch them or anything, just in case. I just smack it up and down the road.

We haven't spotted too many sliotars knocking about Augusta National, but the Masters does have a venerable history in servicing the 'Lad in a GAA Jersey at a major sporting event' genre. It's usually a Kerry jersey, and we await to see if that trend changes this year.

Lowry, meanwhile, has learned of his tee time on Thursday : he is playing with Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood, and is teeing off at 6.19pm Irish time.
