Luck O’ the Irish: Shane Lowry with Incredible Par

In the opening round of the HNA Open de France, Shane Lowry was playing his second shot on the par-4 15th hole, and his approach to the island green came up short. Instead of getting wet, though, Lowry’s golf ball hit the edge of the railroad ties, bounced across the water, and landed on the edge of the fairway.

The Irishman then impressively wedged his third shot to a foot of the stick, leading to a tap-in par.

Lowry finished his first day at Le Golf National with five birdies against four bogeys, good for a 1-under par 70. He sits T7.
