Shane Lowry, who made his Ryder Cup debut as a Captain’s pick at Whistling Straits in 2021, will experience a Ryder Cup on home soil for the first time later this month when he makes his second appearance for Team Europe.
The 2018 Open Champion made the best possible start to his campaign with sixth DP World Tour victory at last year’s BMW PGA Championship, and a steady and consistent performer in the biggest events underlined his case. He counted three top 20s on his 2023 Major resume, the best of those a tied 12th at the US PGA Championship, along with a tie for 12th at the Genesis Scottish Open amid a particularly strong field full of Ryder Cup stars.
He eventually finished ranked ninth on the World Points List and 11th on the European Points List, but his steady performance and prolific team experience made him an expected pick for Luke Donald’s side.
