Shane Lowry

Carnoustie, Kingsbarns, St Andrews, Scotland

SHANE LOWRY: I probably should have been better again. I didn't birdie 16, which is easy, and missed a good chance on the last, but yeah, a bit like yesterday. I would have taken level par, usually take 4-under, but could have been better. My first week back after five weeks, it's pretty good. I've got St. Andrews for two days now, which I feel like I can go out and shoot good scores.

Q. Putts weren't dropping today?
SHANE LOWRY: Yeah, I holed a good one for par on 17. But I holed another long one. I just wasn't really -- didn't birdie the holes I should have, really, you know what I mean. I wasn't hitting it close enough on the holes I should have. I'm putting quite good and my game feels really good, so I'm just looking forward to the next few tournaments.

After Denmark, I just said, put the clubs away for five weeks. I was half-thinking of playing Italy or Germany, but then didn't feel like I had a big enough break. It's been a long year for me traveling to America, so I had a nice five weeks and I'm happy -- I am really happy to be back. I've got six big tournaments coming up, so it's nice.

Q. What did you do with your time? Go away at all?
SHANE LOWRY: Yeah, we actually had our honeymoon, brilliant, Italy for ten days on our honeymoon. Had a weekend away with the lads, as well. Just hung out at home and I actually did quite well practicing, as well, which was nice. The fact that I wanted to do that, as well, was good.

Yeah, I worked a lot on my short game and my putting, so yeah, it's good.

Q. Did you watch The Ryder Cup?
SHANE LOWRY: Oh, yeah. I watched; didn't miss much of it. Obviously I think it was always going to be a tough task for us Europeans but you look at the margin of victory, I think that flatters the Americans a little bit. If you watch Sunday again, the Americans just holed everything, which is a little bit unfortunate for the Europeans.

But like I said, it was always going to be a tough task. I wish I was there to help them but obviously I wasn't, so try to make sure I'm there for the next one.
