The Horizon Irish Open at Mount Juliet will begin on 30 June, and Shane Lowry has confirmed his participation.
He has enjoyed a strong run of form in recent weeks, having won the tournament as an amateur in 2009.
At the Masters, he tied for third while he finished second at the Honda Classic in February and tied for third at the RBC Heritage earlier this month.
As Lowry confirmed his participation at the Irish Open, he said that his recent form has encouraged him as he looks to beat last year’s finish, when he finished 23rd and best of the home contenders.
“Everyone knows how much I love this tournament and how much I enjoy playing in front of my home fans, and they’re always so supportive of me so I’m excited to play in front of them again,” said Shane.
“I’ve been really happy with my form over the last few months and my game feels in great shape heading into the summer, so I really hope I can bring my best stuff to Mount Juliet Estate and put myself into contention come Sunday”.
Last week, Waterford’s Séamus Power was confirmed for the Horizon Irish Open at Mount Juliet as well.
