Lowry gets PGA Tour card boost
29 Jun 2015 21:09
Shane Lowry has accepted special temporary membership for the remainder of the 2014-15 PGA Tour season which should increase his chances of earning his card for 2016.
-
The Tour announced this evening that Lowry, South African Branden Grace and Cameron Smith have accepted temporary membership after producing strong showings earlier this month in the US Open, each finishing the event at Chambers Bay with more non-member FedExCup points than the total of the player who qualified at No. 150 on last year's list.
-
Offaly man Lowry tied for ninth at the US Open, while both Grace and Smith tied for fourth.
-
They are eligible for unlimited sponsor exemptions for the remainder of the Tour season as they attempt to earn 2015-16 PGA Tour cards through the non-member money list or non-member FedExCup points list.
-
Special temporary members are not eligible for the FedExCup playoffs, but can become regular PGA Tour members by winning an official event during the season and would then have their FedExCup points counted and be eligible for the playoffs.
-
The trio join Patrick Rodgers of the United States and Danny Willett of England, who also became special temporary members earlier this year.
