Great Scenes At Sawgrass As Shane Lowry Makes Magic Hole-In-One

Great Scenes At Sawgrass As Shane Lowry Makes Magic Hole-In-One
By PJ Browne Updated

"You play this game, just special things happen sometimes," Shane Lowry said after his third round at the Players Championship on Sunday. The Offalyman had shortly beforehand become just the 10th player ever to make a hole-in-one on one of golf's most famous holes: The 17th at Sawgrass.

"It's pretty cool to do it there, one of the most iconic holes in golf," Lowry said.

"Yeah, what can I say? It was a special thing to happen, and I'm looking forward to turning on my phone and seeing the messages I've got.

"Not only that, it put me back in the tournament somewhat. So it was amazing. It's been a long day today, and I'm glad to make the call and finish well today. Played the 17 hole twice and did it in three shots, so it doesn't owe me anything."

After picking his ball from the cup, Lowry launched it into the gallery, sparking a riotous scramble.

Lowry goes into the final day tied for 11th on five-under, four shots behind leader Anirban Lahiri.

"I'm excited for [Monday] now," said Lowry.


"If it's a long day, I can do something hopefully in the morning and finish it off in the afternoon.

"I just think I need to hit more fairways. I don't think I'm hitting enough fairways. I struggled the first two rounds definitely. [Sunday] was better, this afternoon was better. If you put the ball in the fairway out there, you're going to give yourself chances. The greens are soft.

"I'm not sure what the weather conditions are [on Monday], but like I said, hopefully I can get out there and make a few putts and make a few birdies and get another hole-in-one or something.


"No, it's been one of those days where I look back on it, and myself and Bo were laughing about it. We've done some pretty cool things together, and there's another one to kind of chuck off the list. Yeah, it was special."
