    Tired of watching Shane Lowrys spoiled child attitude on the golf course . swearing smashing clubs and abusing caddies . He acts shocked when he hits a bad shot . A lot of golfers in Sawgrass who were in a far better position than him and higher ranked suffered worse but didn’t have tantrums. He then loses concentration and suffers . If he wants to go to the top he needs to change his ways . All of the top players down the years were well behaved
