  • Shane Lowry celebrates a birdie on the 15th hole during the third round of the 148th Open Championship at Royal Portrush yesterday

Ireland's Shane Lowry is applauded by staff as he arrives to collect the Claret jug after winning the British Open golf Championships at Royal Portrush golf club in Northern Ireland on July 21, 2019.

In converting his overnight four-shot lead into a day-long celebration for jubilant home fans, Lowry also buried the demons of his bitter 2016 US Open defeat when he squandered a same-sized third-round buffer at Oakmont to hand Dustin Johnson the trophy.

Playing in blustery weather, Lowry stretched the lead to six strokes early.

Lowry, who won the 2009 Irish Open as an amateur in similarly poor weather, looked in total control before a combination of three bogeys in the next four holes and Fleetwood's birdie on the 12th cut the gap to four.

His lead on Sunday was briefly cut to three when he bogeyed the first hole after finding the rough off the tee then sand with his approach.

And in changeable conditions at Portrush, Lowry kept his nerve and eventually extended his lead to finish the tournament six shots clear of the field.

Fervently cheered on every shot by the sellout crowd, the 32-year-old from Clara was never seriously troubled in the final round as he carded one-over-par 72 in strong winds and intermittent rain which buffeted the late starters.

While his challengers faded as strong winds and heavy rain battered the course in County Antrim in Northern Ireland, Lowry kept his cool to become the fifth Irish major victor and the first since 2008.

Of the rest, American Tony Finau was the last man standing in the afternoon's treacherous conditions, his even-par 71 helping him lock down outright third at 7-under.

Koepka battled back with an eagle at the fifth but dropped shots at 11 and 17 ensured he narrowly missed out on becoming the first man to finish in the top three at all four majors in a calendar year in a tie for fourth alongside Lee Westwood on six-under.

He joins Rickie Fowler, Jack Nicklaus, Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods as the only players to finish in the top five at all four majors in a calender year in the modern era.

Italy's Francesco Molinari had the round of the day with a 5-under 66, which boosted him 43 spots into a tie for 11th.
