Shane Lowry Ties The Lowest Score In Major PGA Championship History


Shane Lowry, a European Ryder Cup and the 2019 Open winner, delivered a wonderful performance at Valhalla Golf Club on Saturday, securing a 62. This tied for the lowest score ever made in a major tournament. Lowry had the opportunity to set a new record, but his birdie putt on the 18th hole veered just left.

The score of 62 had been recorded four times before his, with Xander Schauffele most recently achieving it on the Thursday before.

Lowry had nine birdies leading up to the par-5 18th, known as the easiest hole on the course. To set the record, he needed a birdie and drove his tee shot 302 yards to the right rough near Valhalla’s scenic waterfalls. His second shot landed just off the fairway in the first cut, 105 yards from the pin. His approach shot reached the green, setting up an eleven-foot, ten-inch putt for the record. The putt was on target but slowly moved left at the last moment.

“To be honest, I would have liked it if I had gone home better,” he said after his round. And he could have. He made par on both par 5s on the back nine.”

Lowry was also aware that a score of 61 was within reach as he stood on the 18th tee.

“It’s amazing when you have a round like that, you just kind of forget what happens and keep going,” he said.

Despite not reaching the record, Lowry took the clubhouse lead at -13. Xander Schauffele, eight holes behind, held a one-stroke lead at -14.
