SHANE LOWRY REMINDED everyone – not least himself – of his class today when he posted a six under, 65 to move to a share of tenth position at the RBC Heritage.

The Offaly man had shown signs of form yesterday, when he posted six birdies in his opening round. The trouble was that he also misfired off the tee on too many holes, shooting five bogeys.

He was more consistent today. An eagle on the par 5, second set him up for the day and while he bogeyed the next, a fine of run of form was to come, including birdies on the two par 3s as well as two other birdies to leave him five under at the turn.


Unfortunate not to land an ace, Lowry consolidated his start with a solid back nine, posting a one under, 34, to leave him nine shots behind the clubhouse leader, Stewart Cink, who shot an eight-under round of 63, to complement the 63 he shot yesterday. Lowry is currently in a tie for tenth with four other players, having moved up 36 places on his overnight position.

Corey Connors is second on 11-under; Cameron Smith, Sungjae Im, Billy Horschel and Collin Morikawa share third spot on nine-under. However Irishman, Graeme McDowell, is set to miss the cut. He finished with an even par round of 71, leaving him two over after two rounds and with the cut projected to be one-under, he will miss the weekend’s action.
