Lowry wins The Open Championship

     Shane Lowry won The Open Championship by 6 strokes for first major title on Sunday at Royal Portrush.

His final round of 72 allowed him to finish at 15 under par and to win the first British Open played on the island of Ireland since 1951. 

"I can't believe this is mine," Lowry said after being handed the trophy.

He earned his place with a 63 in the third round that broke the 54-hole scoring record at the British Open and staked him to a four-shot lead. And then he handled the nerves and expectations, both in abundance, and never let anyone closer than three shots.

Lowry, a 32-year-old Irishman won despite cold, gusting winds and often-heavy rain.

It is Lowry’s first major win and only his second PGA Tour victory, his other one coming at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in 2015.

The 2019 British Open took place at Royal Portrush Golf Club in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. This was the second time that this venue has hosted the event and the first time since 1951.
