Irish golfer Shane Lowry made a remarkable surge up the leaderboard during the third round of the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club. Starting the day trailing leader Xander Schauffele by eight shots, Lowry’s impressive 6-under 29 on the front nine quickly propelled him into serious contention.

Lowry, a three-time PGA TOUR winner, showcased his skills with a stunning display of birdies on holes 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9. This incredible performance brought him within striking distance, just two shots behind the leader.

Lowry’s stellar front nine also earned him a unique place in PGA Championship history. Being the first player to card a sub-30 score on either nine at a Valhalla-hosted championship event highlighted his exceptional round.

Notably, the last player to achieve a score of 29 in a PGA Championship round was Kevin Kisner at Bellerive Country Club in 2018. Lowry’s remarkable feat added to the excitement of the tournament and solidified his status as a top contender.

Teaming up with renowned golfer Rory McIlroy, Lowry had recently tasted victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, ending a notable five-year winless streak on the PGA TOUR. His current impressive performance at Valhalla indicates a return to top form and competitiveness.

Following closely behind Lowry, McIlroy also displayed his skills with a strong front nine, posting a 3-under 32 to position himself at 8 under for the tournament. The duo’s exemplary play has set the stage for an exciting final stretch of the championship.

McIlroy, a four-time major winner, is seeking to end a drought in major championships that has persisted since his 2014 PGA Championship victory at Valhalla. With both Lowry and McIlroy in contention, the remainder of the PGA Championship promises intense competition and thrilling golf.
