The happiest man in Sawgrass! Shane Lowry enjoyed Offaly's win more than anyone

Forget about the final round preparations, there was more important business in Tullamore.

YOU’D FORGIVE SHANE Lowry for feeling a little down this morning after his challenge at The Players Championship collapsed on Saturday but it appears he’s anything but.

The Offaly man slipped down the leaderboard last night but preparations for today’s final round couldn’t have gone any better, as he celebrated Offaly’s landmark victory.

The Faithful County finally broke their Leinster hoodoo with a first provincial win in nine years earlier as they defeated Longford in Tullamore – and Lowry certainly enjoyed it.

You can take the man out of Offaly, but you can’t take Offaly out of the man.
