He may have been a professional for less than a month, but Shane Lowry has already won a Golfer of the Month award.

He may have been a member of the European Tour for less than a month, but Ireland’s Shane Lowry has already won a Golfer of the Month award.
The 22-year-old amateur winner of the Irish Open, now a professional, has been named as the winner of the May prize on the circuit ahead of a list of candidates which included Swede Henrik Stenson for his Players Championship victory in Florida and Paul Casey for his third win of the year at the BMW PGA Championship.
Lowry became only the third amateur ever to capture a Tour title and in the second round at County Louth fired a 62, which matched the lowest round by an amateur in the circuit’s history.
