Race to Dubai leader Lowry ready to bring Champion quality to Home Of Golf

Shane Lowry will tee it up at the Home of Golf for the first time as Open Champion this week when the Irishman features in a star-studded field of golfers and celebrities at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The 32-year-old claimed his maiden Major title at Royal Portrush two months ago and has been riding the crest of a wave of positivity and celebration since.

“It feels like every tournament I play now is a big event,” said Lowry. “Obviously I had a decent week at Wentworth last week so I was happy enough with that and hopefully I can take that form into this week and have a good week here.”

He posted a tied 11th place finish in his first European Tour appearance since becoming Champion Golfer of the Year at last week’s BMW PGA Championship, and is relishing a return to links golf – which has provided him with two of his stand-out achievements thus far, his famous Irish Open victory as an amateur in 2009 as well as his Open Championship triumph.

Lucas Bjerregaard returns as defending champion in a pro-am format event which takes in St Andrews Old Course, Kingsbarns Golf Links and Carnoustie Golf Links – with all players in the field playing each course once, before the cut falls at the conclusion of round three and the battle for the title returns to St Andrews for the final day.

“It’s really nice being back, some fond memories of last year even though it was very cold. I’ve not been playing as well as I’d like the last couple of months so hopefully some of those good memories can spark a little something in my game.” – Defending champion Lucas Bjerregaard.
