Shane Lowry has won the British Open for his first major title.
The 32-year-old Irishman held on through a wet and windy day at Royal Portrush to beat Tommy Fletwood by 6 strokes.
Lowry led going into Sunday’s final round
Lowry entered the day with a four-stroke lead. He shot 1-over 72 and finished with a 15-under 269 total.
It was the second time Lowry went into the final round of a major with a four-stroke lead, but he ended up in a tie for second at the 2016 U.S. Open after shooting a 6-over 76.
