Shane Lowry

Cleveland Golf and Srixon are celebrating another European Tour victory after Shane Lowry won the Portugal Masters at the Oceânico Victoria Golf Club this weekend.

The Irishman shot a final round of 5-under-par to beatEngland’s Ross Fisher by just one shot, winning his first tournament on the European Tour as a professional. The 25-year-old has now become only the second person in the history of the European Tour to win as both an amateur and a professional, having won the Irish Open as an amateur three years ago.

The highlight of the round for Lowry, was an eagle at the par-4 11th hole, holing out from the fairway with his 588 CB 7-iron.

Lowry, who has moved up to 29th place in the Race to Dubai after receiving a cheque for €375,000, now qualifies to play in the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament at Mission Hills next month as well as the 2013 Volvo Golf Champions next season.

After the victory, Lowry said: “I cannot believe this. I can’t explain how I feel really. It’s a dream come true – I’m over the moon. Everyone was referring to me as the fella who won the Irish Open as an amateur but now I’ve won such a prestigious event I don’t know what to say.”
