The long-awaited return of The Open Championship to Northern Ireland ended with Shane Lowry keeping the silver claret jug on the Emerald Isle.
The Irishman withstood miserable weather conditions and the weight of local expectation to claim his first Major title with a stunning six shot victory at the 148th Open Championship moving to World No.17.
After posting a record breaking 63 on Saturday evening, Lowry showed a different side to his game on an extremely wet and windy afternoon at Royal Portrush Golf Club as he posted a battling 72 to reach 15 under par and get his hands on the Claret Jug.
