Irish Golfer Shane Lowry Hits Second Hole-In-One At British Masters

Irish Golfer Shane Lowry Hits Second Hole-In-One At British Masters
12:51, 12 Oct 2018

Shane Lowry produced a moment of brilliance on day two of the British Masters at Walton Heath as the Irish golfer bagged a hole-in-one on the par 3 5th hole.

Amazingly, it was the second ace to be struck at the Surrey venue at this year's tournament as Englishman Eddie Pepperell bagged his own hole-in-one on Thursday afternoon on the 9th hole as he stormed to the top of the leaderboard.

Lowry was having a topsy-turvy round in tough conditions as he had already amassed an eagle, three birdies, four bogeys and one double bogey before heading to the fifth tee, but his gorgeous hole-in-one created rapturous celebrations from the exultant fans, and Lowry celebrated by embracing his playing partners.

Launching an iron towards the green, Lowry's ball was aimed straight at the flag and it duly bounced once before hitting the bottom of the cup.  Pepperell's ace yesterday had an element of fortune about it having spun back off the flag, but this was a delightful hole-in-one that helped him get back into red figures for his round.

Like yesterday's hole-in-one Lowry will receive a huge £20k cheque from the sponsors that will go to charity, but the Irishman will be enjoying the golden score of one his card as he attempts to make the cut for the weekend.

Lowry started the day on +3 after a difficult round one, but he will feel a whole lot better for netting a sublime ace on the fifth hole and exciting the rain-swept crowd.
