At the time of writing, Shane Lowry is nine-under-par during the second round of the Players Championship at Sawgrass, three shots behind leader Jason Day.
But what a start to his second round. The Offaly man broke the TPC Sawgrass back-nine record on his way to a seven-under 65 yesterday, but some of that form seemed to desert him when he found the water on 17 this afternoon. He recovered well to make bogey having come up well short in his approach to the par-three - which today contained a back pin, no less - but found himself outside the Top 10 at 6-under.

That was until he holed out out from the fairway on 18 with a stunning, 120-yard shot, before producing a masterclass in effortlessly cool golf celebrations.

You know you're shit-hot when you hit a shot that's so good you feel compelled to protest it, and have the confidence to give a fellow professional a playful slap on the hoop with your club.
Lowry's eagle was just the sixth of its kind on the same hole at Sawgrass.
