Lowry hopes to reignite season

Open champion Shane Lowry remains confident his swing is in decent shape as the Majors loom large on the golfing horizon.

The burly Irishman has struggled for results in recent weeks, but he has put the failure down to a cold putter, and still has plenty of self-belief in his tee-to-green game.

The 31-year-old has missed two of his last three cuts, finishing tied for 60th place in the one tournament where he managed to qualify for weekend employment. His last Stateside top-ten finish came in the Canadian Open in June last year.

The US PGA, US Open and Masters are still to come this year and Lowry is hoping he can contend in the PGA Tour's double-header at Muirfield Village over the next fortnight.

"I went into the Players Championship in March and was feeling great about my game," Lowry told Golf Channel.

"I've come back out, missed cuts, but, all in all, I feel like my game is really good. I've just struggled on the greens a little bit and I just need to build up a little bit of confidence.

"I feel like I'm right where I want to be, it's just on the greens I need to improve.

"Tee-to-green, I've been fine. If I can just get better on the greens, I feel I'll be there or thereabouts. It's all about waiting for it to happen and just not trying to force it too much."

Lowry is 71.00 for the US PGA, 91.00 for the US Open and 91.00 for the Masters.
