Shane Lowry Tears It Up In Turkey To Take Joint Lead With €1 Million On Offer

Six shots behind going into the third round of the Turkish Airlines Open, Shane Lowry finds himself with a share of the lead after 54 holes.

Lowry holed six birdies on his way to shooting a 65 at Regnum Carya. He is now tied at 14-under with Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat going into the final round. For the winner, there is the tiny amount of €985,495 on offer.

The Offaly man hit a real purple patch early on the back nine when he landed three consecutive birdies.

This was his birdie on the 13th.
