Shane Lowry officially won the 2019 British Open

The 32-year-old golfer Shane Lowry won the first major title with a score of -15 at Portrush, Northern Ireland.

At the end of the fourth day with 72 strokes (par71), Shane Lowry was still unbeatable thanks to the accumulated advantages in the previous three days. Golfer from Ireland knows how to take advantage of the support of the audience at Portrush, as well as the experience of playing in this stadium while still playing amateur.

The harsh weather with strong winds and heavy rain made it difficult for Lowry's rivals more than him. Tommy Fleetwood, who has the highest ability to chase, extinguishes the hope of beating 2 sticks on hole 16. This helps Lowry to step up to the teeing ground of hole 18 and knows that he can hit more than 9 strokes still champion.

That did not happen. After making a gentle push to score par on hole 18, Lowry lifted his face and pointed to the sky to celebrate the victory. He won the championship in a convincing way with a six-point margin compared to Fleetwood (-9 points) - a record of the gap between the leader and the second-place at The Open since Louis Oosthuizen's coronation. in 2010.

This championship is a reward for Lowry after a week of stable competition. Even in unfavorable conditions on the last day, Lowry's +1 is still respectable because of the top nine golfers, only the third Tony Finau left the field with even points, thereby achieving a total score of -7.

Major tournament winners - Brooks Koepka - scored +3, sharing fourth place with Lee Westwood. Robert MacIntyre, Tyrrell Hatton, Danny Willett and Rickie Fowler both finished sixth with -5.

The most disappointing in the final round is probably JB Holmes with a score of +16. American Golfer four times double-bogey in holes 1, 12, 17, 18 and once hit triple-bogey in hole 11. Holmes entered the final day with third place, six sticks from Lowry. But at the end of the tournament, he dropped to 67th.

Another bad player is Justin Rose. The 2013 US Open champion and last year's runner-up could not take advantage of starting the last round with -9 points to chase the lead. He double-bogey on hole 9 and got seven bogeys. Rose's performance in the last round is +8, resulting in a final result of -1.
