Watch: Lowry Hole-In-One The Pick Of Incredible Shots From Irish At British Masters

How about this for a collection of shots? The British Masters is taking place this week at Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, and Friday's round some saw some incredible shots from the Irish contingent on show at the tournament. Shane Lowry, Paul Dunne and Padraig Harrington all produced moments of magic, with a Lowry hole-in-one the pick of the bunch.

First up we had Shane Lowry pulling off this incredible ace on the par-3 fifth. Having started his round on the back nine, he started slowly after the turn with two bogeys and a double bogey in four holes, but he responded brilliantly here.

The Clara man will pocket a cool ยฃ20,000 for the shot, following in the steps of Englishman Eddie Pepperell who recorded the feat on the same hole in yesterday's opening round.

The Irish were not finished there however. Three time major champion Padraig Harrington showed his deft touch around the green, holing this chip on the par five 2nd to record a birdie.

Paul Dunne also got in on the action. Dunne is defending his crown this weekend, having won this tournament last year. He was not one to be outdone by his compatriots, producing a pair of stunning shots during his round.

First up was this delightful approach to the 17th green, with the spin placed on the ball guiding it wonderfully into the hole.

Having started his round on the back nine, Dunne produced another amazing shot on the 11th. His third shot on a par five, this masterful chip was enough to give him an eagle. Take a look at this one.

While this is an example of what each of them can do, a lack of consistency means things are not exactly going as planned for the Irishmen.

Defending champion Dunne finds himself seven shots behind leader Eddie Peppered one one under-par, while Lowry and Harrington are a bit further back on two and three over-par respectively.
