Shane Lowry will leave the Players Championship with mixed emotions. He is not satisfied with the final round. “The last three days are as good of golf as I can play, and I need to find something on the greens over the next couple of weeks,” Lowry said after a final-round 70 at TPC Sawgrass.
"It was by far the worst score I could have shot." There are several things he is not satisfied with, but he highlighted one in particular. “I'm disappointed how I putted,” he said, as quoted by irishexaminer.com “I've been working so hard on it, and it's just not coming in.
I need to just keep my chin up and keep going, keep working, keep grinding away, and hopefully it'll come in about a month's time”.
Lowry had a great couple of days, but when it was most needed, he couldn't show his class.
This is why he is most disappointed. Lowry thinks he could have done better, but he still focuses on positive things. “I felt good coming into the week, was excited about it, and then Thursday was just kind of a little kick in the backside really,” Lowry said.
“Can never get complacent in this game. I'm not saying I was complacent, but you just need to be on the ball. It is that type of course. I felt like then Friday, I played lovely golf. I mean, I shot 2-under (Sunday), and it's by far the worst score I could have shot.
That's disappointing because I felt like the way I played, I had a 5- or 6- or 7-under in me today, and that would have moved me nicely up the leaderboard. … To be honest, I played great yesterday I played great today, so probably should have finished better.
But I have to look at the positives, as well, and the way I drove the ball and hit the ball over the last three rounds is pretty nice”.
