He has actually put on weight by the looks of it the last two months. Was on Second Captains a few months back, and he had lost a lot. Is certainly heavier now. It didn't bother him today. Super fit athletes like Day and Garcia are falling down around him....keep supping Shane!!

1. OWGR #19 (up 29 spots from 48th).
2. 3yr TOUR Exemption and €uro 1,412,759 and moves over €7 million in European Tour Official Career Earnings.
3. 2016 Masters, Ryder Cup, Olympics, etc.

LOWRY's third victory in his 161st European Tour event - his second as a professional and one as an amateur (2009 Irish Open). Since SHANE's 2012 Portugal Masters victory his best previous finishes were T3 in the Alfred Dunhill Links 2013, second in the 2014 BMW PGA Championship, T4 in the Scottish Open, tied second in the 2014 Wales Open and 5th in Dubai World Tour Championship. This victory beats his previous best 2015 performance of T6 in the BMW PGA Championship and T9 in the US Open.

It's LOWRY's first WGC victory in his ninth career WGC event (and third Bridgestone appearance - tied 48th in 2013) beating his previous best WGC performance of tied ninth in the 2013 WGC Cadillac Match Play Championship and the third Irish victory in the Bridgestone Invitational, following Darren Clarke in 2003 and Rory McIlroy in 2014. SHANE follows Tiger Woods (1999), Craig Parry (2002), Stewart Cink (2004), Vijay Singh (2008), Hunter Mahan (2010), Adam Scott (2011), Keegan Bradley (2012) and Rory McIlroy (2014), as players making the WGC Bridgestone Invitational their first WGC title.

The first player from the Republic of Ireland to win on The European Tour since, Simon Thornton at the 2013 Najeti Hotels et Golfs Open presented by Neuflize OBC in St Omer in France and The first time there have been back-to-back Irish triumphs in WGC history following Rory McIlroy win at the 2015 WGC Cadillac Matchplay and also the second consecutive Irish victory in the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, following Rory McIlroy in 2014. The third different Irishman to win a WGC event, following Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy and the fifth Irish WGC victory. Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy have two each.

"Offaly's best golfer" is on his way Devil Sat nite in Clara just won't be the same.

Brilliant win for Shane  , didn't see the last 2 days . Strangely enough for the first time before the WGC started I read some stuff about his reaction re his younger brothers win in the Mullingar Scratch cup , which has been  a huge event in Irish amateur golf for a long time . Shane was 200 before the start , and 220 after the first round . He wont be those sort of prices for a long time .

Followed him around a bit at the Irish Open , TV must add quite a few pounds , he was not carrying nearly as much weight as the pictures indicate . Strange though that he is now taking a 6 week break from golf after missing the cut in the USPGA .  Beards OK with me , he just looks like a sailor playing golf .
