Pro-Am appearances: 1 (2010)
What an incredible 2019 Shane Lowry had, after capturing the Open Championship at a raucous Royal Portrush for the biggest win of his career. A Co. Offaly native and one of the most popular Irish players of recent times, Lowry shot to prominence in 2009 when he became only the third amateur to win a European Tour title by capturing the Irish Open, following a dramatic play-off at Baltray. The big win followed at the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational en route to a career-best finish of fifth in the European Tour Race to Dubai. Brendan Lowry, his father, was a famous Gaelic footballer who won an All-Ireland title with Offaly in 1982.
