Shane Lowry: Open champion excited by PGA return plan

Open champion Shane Lowry aims to “hit the ground running” after the PGA Tour announced a scheduled resumption on 11 June.

The tour has been suspended since 12 March because of Covid-19 but a return, behind closed doors, is planned at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas.

The 33-year-old Irishman won his maiden major at Royal Portrush last year but the 2020 Open, scheduled for Royal St George’s in July, has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Lowry is “very disappointed” that he will not get the chance to defend the title this year, but the other three majors have been pencilled in for late 2020.

The world number 20 is eager to get back to competitive golf, even if there are no spectators to watch the action.
