VIVA, LAS VEGAS!

'I’ll admit that when I first drove down the Las Vegas strip in a rental SUV, golf was the last thing on my mind. It 'may' not be the next time...'

Open Champion, Shane Lowry will put women’s sport to the fore at Galgorm Castle this week by wearing the 20×20 campaign’s logo on his chest at the Irish Open.

The ever-popular Clara star, a proud Dad to his daughter Iris, has put his name behind the 20×20 initiative to ensure his little girl is given the same opportunities as boys her age as she makes her journey through life.

“Sport has always been something special for me,” said Lowry. “Not only has it given me a livelihood, but it has also given me tremendous pleasure both when playing it and watching it.

“No matter what my daughter, Iris does in the future, I hope that she gets the same enjoyment from sport that I have. I want her to have role models, and I want more than anything for her to have the same opportunities that boys would have.”

For all Lowry’s achievements as a golfer, few moments compare to the sight of his daughter Iris making a bee-line for Dad when winning the 2019 HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship ever before he became a Major champion at Portrush.

“When Iris was born that kinda gave me a new lease of life,” Lowry admits.

“I’m not going to be great every day, but the one thing I’m going to do is I’m going to get up every morning and try to be the best golfer, the best father and the best husband I can be.”

Huge credit must go to Lowry’s sponsor Immedis who offered up their spot on his shirt in a great show of support for the #ThinkItAskIt movement. Fair play!
