WATCH OUT, HERE comes Shane Lowry.

The Offaly native moved into four shots off leader Jim Furyk tonight with a round of 66 at the Bridgestone Invitational.

Lowry carded four birdies on the front nine before a vital par after some difficulty on the 14th where he found the bunker. That led to this impressive putt on the 15th and it was clear the Clara man means business this weekend:

Graeme McDowell is tied for fourth meanwhile after a round which included 10 straight pars straight out the gate.

Pádraig Harrington again recorded a 72 as he slips to four over for the tournament.

‘I woke up 3 hours later covered in ice, down my pants, I’ve no recollection of it’
