Shane Lowry: Episode 110


Shane Lowry is enjoying the best year of his golfing career with a current ranking in the world's top 20, tournament wins, the public's respect and yet he remains one of Ireland's most down to earth sportsmen. Shane discusses how he believes that he is in a peculiar minority in the world, what lies ahead if he is to keep his current ranking, his friendship with Padraig Harrington, how embracing natural talent can bite you in the arse and his thoughts on Rory McIlroy. Shane explains the modern unhealthy approach to golf, how success drives him rather than money, his confidence in him making the Ryder Cup team next year, his memories of winning the 2009 Irish open as an amateur, the wake-up call that he got upon turning pro, the important role of his caddie Dermot Byrne, receiving unsolicited advice and his take on the role of luck in sport.
