Lowry marched into a four-stroke lead with a spectacular third round 63 and turned that into a six-shot victory.
Winner of the Irish Open as a 22-year-old amateur in 2009 – only two other amateurs had won a DP World Tour event before him – he led the 2016 US Open by four after 54 holes, but was overtaken by Dustin Johnson.

His Irish Open success at County Louth included a 10 under par 62 which equalled the lowest score by an amateur in Tour history. Tied for fourth in the 2021 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island and, as a wild card selection for his first Ryder Cup that season, partnered Tyrell Hatton to a memorable fourball win over Harris English and Tony Finau.
Joint third at the 2022 Masters, but his highlight of the year came five months later with victory in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
