Shane Lowry had some of the photographs of the day on Thursday on the Wyndham Championship on the Sedgefield Nation Membership in Greensboro, NC. The shot helped the Irishman card a 2-under 68 to sit down at T28 after his first spherical. He’s 3 photographs off chief Adam Scott.

His hole-out at the par-5 fifteenth was once implausible. However what made the shot exceptional wasn’t essentially the shot itself, however the way it took place.

Lowry chunked his preliminary chip shot from simply off the golf green, shifting the ball possibly six ft onto the perimeter. He then hit a super chip that rolled useless middle lower to make birdie.

After his spherical, he tweeted the video of that spectacular shot with, “If in the beginning you don’t prevail…” with a clover, a logo he makes use of on his balls.

That gap out was once one in every of two he made at the day, and driven him one stroke nearer to the leaders. After 13 pars at the spherical, he needed to take the scoring the place he may just. The 36-year-old made birdies on 3 holes and one bogey at the par-4 1st. So it was once a spherical of grinding out pars and staying within the hunt.

Lowry is among the gamers at the bubble for the FedEx Cup playoffs. The previous Open Championship winner began the match at No. 76 within the standings. After his first spherical, he shot up 5 spots to No. 71. That suggests Lowry is only one position clear of enjoying in Memphis for the FedEx St. Jude Championship.

Lowry wishes 13 issues to take the seventieth spot via Sunday.
