He has big names such as Spieth, Koepka, Rose, Fleetwood and Holmes in the chasing pack but but his form suggests he can hold off their challenge.
Very pleased, very happy for @ShaneLowryGolf! Tomorrow will be a big day for him. He's been in this position once before, with a 4-shot lead at Oakmont in 2016 @usopengolf (final-round 76 to finish 2nd), and hopefully he learned from his mistakes there. I wish him well!@TheOpen— Jack Nicklaus (@jacknicklaus) July 20, 2019
All his fans in Longford wish him well in his pursuit of the Claret Jug.
