Irishman Shane Lowry Decides To Snub Q-School

Ireland’s man of the moment Shane Lowry has decided not to go to the PGA Tour qualifying school after winning the Portugal Masters last week.

The big Irishman was due to fly to the States this week for the First Stage of qualifying, but has now made himself available for the BMW Masters in Shanghai next week instead.

The win in Portugal on Sunday lifted Lowry from 126th to 74th in the world, but getting into the top 100 came too late to get him an exemption to Stage Two.

Lowry told the Irish examiner website earlier this month: “If I get through to Second Stage the problem will come if I make the top-60 for the finish of the Race to Dubai.
