Shane Lowry


SHANE LOWRY: I only hit one bad shot and that was on 14. I didn't hit a great shot on 16, either. I should have made par there. Missed a short putt. I think 70 was the worst score I could have shot today, yeah.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: Yeah, it did. It's that type of golf course, I think. I think where it got away from me was the first round when I was looking at the leaderboard a bit much, and looking at everyone making birdie, and I'm quite frustrated when I'm making bogeys. It's a bit of a mistake but I've learned from that, and I'll know not to do it next time.

Q. You've had two Open Championship appearances, everyone says if you're ever going to have a chance of winning one, this might be it?
SHANE LOWRY: That's a tough question. But I definitely know I'm good enough. I played the par-5s poorly all week. I played 14, 15, 16 very poorly all week. Yeah, ifs and buts. It could have been a better week.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: Yeah, definitely with the next few tournaments I have coming up, Bridgestone and PGA. I played four rounds this week, and to do quite well, I think, 9-over doesn't feel great, but I think it will be definitely inside the top 50. And get a decent enough check out of it, move up the Merit a little bit. I'm quite good.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: Yeah, definitely. Like I said at the start of the week, I'm only 26 and I need to play in as many Majors as I can, although I don't want to play in them all up. I think in two, three, four years time I'll be going into Major championships trying to compete and trying to win them. I'm not going out there and trying to compete, if it does happen I'll be delighted. But I definitely think it's good enough to happen, but I definitely think I need to get a bit more experience in them. As I said, if I could get four rounds at Bridgestone, and if I can get four rounds at the PGA I'll be happy enough.

Q. (Inaudible.)
SHANE LOWRY: Pretty much the same as every other week. Yeah, I suppose when you go and play this golf course, we were playing it Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, I felt some of the tees were giving the golf course too much respect. I feel like you can go out and do that sometimes. And then, you know, I went out and tried to play, because I'm quite an aggressive player, I like hitting driver, I like to get the ball well down the fairway. I feel like the closer I get to the green, the better chance making a good score on the hole, that's certainly not the case this week. I suppose I had to adapt a little bit. And I think my game plan was quite good. I think just a golf course with more drivers would suit me. 18 was probably the hardest tee shot on the course. If there's more drivers on it, it probably would have suited me more.
