Work to do at Wyndham for Lowry, Power & McDowell with FedEx cut looming

Must read

ANA Inspiration, The Blue Wall, and a lesson for the PGA Tour

There’s nothing worse than burying your head in the sand and pretending everything is rosy, but it's a tactic that the PGA Tour has been deploying unapologetically for years

High science or a load of balls?

To find the ultimate ball for you, a ‘fitting’ under PGA Pro/Trackman supervision is wise. After all, if there's advantage to be had, why not take it?

One Major title or 18 – they’re all special to those on golf’s glory list 

The US PGA was a welcome return to the big time despite the lack of spectators. Let's hope the US Open can deliver the goods too

Get Shorty*

The 9-Hole Course is back in the limelight, and none more so in Ireland than Cruit Island, Mulranny, Castlegregory and Bushfoot

Shane Lowry got his Wyndham Championship tilt off to a reasonable start in Greenboro, North Carolina with an opening round of two under par (68).

It leaves the Open Champion six shots off the pace set by Harold Varner III who returned a bogey-free eight-under par 62 to lead alongside Roger Sloan and Tom Hoge in the final PGA Tour event before the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Lowry, who carded four birdies and two bogeys in his round is in T43 place after day one and is joined on that number by Seamus Power who had a more colourful round with five birdies and three bogeys up to the 16th before play was suspended due to inclement weather, leaving 33 players to complete their opening rounds today.

Ireland’s other representative in the field, Graeme McDowell needs a big day after an opening round of 73 (+3) left him in T133 position and with a lot to do having returned three bogeys, a double bogey and two birdies.

The top 125 players after this weekend make the cut for the first post-season event next week, the Northern Trust in Boston with McDowell currently in 108th place, Lowry in 131st and Power in 161st on the FedEx Cup standings.
