AMATEUR WINS IRISH OPEN IN DEBUT

Irish Amateur Shane Lowry won the 2009 Irish Open in his debut on the 3rd playoff hole. This was a huge win for the 22 year old in his home country. Lowry missed a 3 foot putt on the final hole of regulation that would have won it for him but went on to beat Robert Rock of England in the playoff.

Lowry was heavily supported throughout the tournament by his home fans and this video shows a great celebration on the green after he holed his final putt.
