Shane Lowry had problems at the beginning of the CJ Cup, considering that he had to go to the store because the putter broke. He explained how it happened; "So I was pulling my putter out of the bag and I pulled it out quite quick and as it came out, it fell.
As it fell, I tried to like flick it up with my foot, but like kind of not too like aggressive or anything, just kind of tried, because the shaft was like this and tried to flick it up with my foot and I caught it like right where the graphite meets the steel on those shafts and it just snapped in half.
"- he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com
Shane Lowry: Odyssey were good to me
The situation was somewhat comical and he could not have expected it to come to that. However, things turned out for the best for him. "I was like, yeah, I had to like pick Matt Fitzpatrick off the ground from laughing.
Yeah, it was interesting. I didn't know what was going to happen, I didn't know if I was going to be able to use it again. It was absolutely accidental, there was no anger or anything. It was like very, very strange. It was disappointing because I like that putter.
That's the one I won with a few weeks ago and I kind of was starting to like it. Yeah, look, Odyssey were very good to me. They sent one to PGA Tour Superstore down in Bluffton, which is like an hour away, so I got in the car after the round and I drove down there, and then I bought another one just to be safe, just to have an extra one there just in case we didn't get on too well." Lowry is a great player and we'll see how he manages at the CJ Cup. We hope he'll show his full potential.
