Five things you didn’t know about me… Shane Lowry

Irish golfer Shane Lowry is a focussed and tranquil character on the golf course but you soon find out that he’s different off it.

  1. I love coffee! I am actually very lucky because in Dublin we have quality coffee shops.
  2. I am a big sports fan. I used to play everything when I was a kid such as Gaelic football and soccer. My favourite thing to do during the weekends is to go and watch my local team play football.
  3. People may see me as a happy-go-lucky and upbeat person but when I am actually on the course I can be quite moody and I am sure my caddie will vouch for that.
  4. The only time I have been star struck in my life was when I was watching a testimonial and I was sitting right behind Prince William.
  5. The best round of golf I have seen was when Ross Fisher nearly shot a record-breaking round of 59 in the Irish Open in 2010 but just missed out and finished with 61.
