Shane Lowry is happy to have a return date to aim for.

While golf courses are set to re-open here from tomorrow, the PGA Tour will return on 11 June with the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas.

It's one of three June tournaments that the Offaly man plans to play in, with the RBC Heritage in South Carolina and the Travelers Championship Connecticut the other two.

"Personally I'm ok about playing it (the Charles Schwab Challenge)," he said on RTÉ Radio 1's Sunday Sport.

"I'm going to go play. The PGA Tour, they're a huge organisation, and they'll do all the right things to make sure everyone's safe, and nobody gets sick.

"We'll have to wait and see how it goes.

"I'm not really one to comment on how people are dealing with it, or how the government or anyone in power is dealing with the whole thing.

"I'm doing my own thing, and myself and Wendy are trying to be as safe as we can."

The PGA Tour has provided players with home testing kits, which must be used three days before the event starts, and they won't be allowed to travel to the tournaments until they're given the all clear.

On top of that, they'll be tested at the course at the start and the end of the tournament.

For Lowry who is currently living in the United States, this is the re-assurance he needs to be able to play

"Along the road, travelling through airports, that type of stuff can be picked up," he continued.

"So everyday you fill out forms, and you get tested at the start and end of the week.

"It seems like they're going to be very regimental in how they do stuff, and you're going to be getting basically screened every day you go to the golf course.

"Everybody stays in the same hotel, and nobody's allowed to leave to go to restaurants, so it is quite strict.

"But I'm pretty happy that we're back playing golf, and I'm really looking forward to the competitive side of it."
