Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Shane Lowry
Phil Mickelson has been dishing out the thumbs up of late -- maybe even a record number of them -- and earns one of his own from Bryce Danielson for this week's contests on Yahoo.
Tiger Woods isn't the only show in town at Pebble Beach, but he is still the biggest attraction, and lands a spot in Len Hochberg's picks to click in this week's contests on DraftKings.
Rory McIlroy won the RBC Canadian Open by seven strokes, even with tough competition, and now moves up to No. 3 in the world just in time for this week’s US Open.
When it comes to major championships these days, it's Brooks Koepka's world, and we're all just living in it. Len Hochberg ranks the field for the upcoming U.S. Open, and there's no surprise at the very top.
Putting seems to be more important this week than usual, which bodes well for Brandt Snedeker and his chances of returning value for DraftKings players.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Lowry's body of work saw no near-wins last season and a rank outside the top 125, a clear disappointment coming off a $1,585,436 season the year prior. Fortunately for him, his 2015 WGC-Bridgestone victory granted him a three-year exemption that will extend his fully exempt PGA Tour status through the 2017-18 season. After nearly winning the U.S. Open in 2016, the burly Irishman has posted just one top-10, so it's clear Lowry comes with some volatility. Further increasing his risk has been a limited schedule of 17 or less PGA Tour events the last three seasons, so be warned that his above average talent comes with downside as well.
Lowry's first full-season on the PGA Tour was mostly a success, but it could have been so much better if not for a disastrous final-round at the U.S. Open. Lowry, a season European Tour veteran, dipped his toes in the PGA Tour pond for the first time last season and at $1.5 million in earnings, it had to be classified as a success, but a major-win would have catapulted him into an entirely different stratosphere. With that said, his loss is the salary cap player's gain as his price is very reasonable heading into this season. It would be nice to see some added consistency this season, but that can be expected after getting acclimated last year. In draft leagues, he should be taken in the sixth or seventh round.
Lowry, a 22-year-old from Ireland, is ranked 16th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings as of mid-May 2009. He is being urged to declare himself as a professional by Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy.
