  • Lowry's British Open win caps off big year in majors

"I'm fairly overwhelmed. I can't believe what's been going on".

"Look I've said it before but my parents sacrificed an bad lot for me when I was growing up".

The pro-golfer won the 148th Open at Royal Portrush over the weekend.

"He sacrificed a lot for me, he borrowed money to buy me golf clubs and so to be able to hand him the Claret Jug was huge".

While he will be able to celebrate over the next days, it won't be long until the Open champion will be back training.

The Open champion Shane Lowry believes the 2020 Olympic experience will be "incredible" and says he would "absolutely" carry the Irish flag in Tokyo, if asked.

The 32-year-old claims to have been swamped by the outpouring of emotion across the island of Ireland, with a home victor on the Open's historic return to Portrush for the first time in 68 years.

Lowry expects family support to help him fathom his achievement, although his grandmother is now a star in her own right after revealing she had allowed herself a brandy for the first time in ten years.

"If this means building up our little town, that's what I love to see", she added. I've barely had time to be on my phone or do anything.

"The only thing I've seen like this before is when they win a county championship and they come and march through the town".

"Everybody was talking to me about my granny yesterday". She is a great woman, she's been great to me over the years. "Anyone I'm close within the golfing circle has been in touch".

"Even though last week wasn't the week I had envisaged for myself, I couldn't be happier and more proud of @shanelowrygolf", he wrote. "To be able to win in Ireland and to have all my immediate family there, it's just incredible".

"It has been incredible, I didn't know if I would ever achieve anything like this, it's just wonderful", he said. Obviously, it's taken a lot more than luck to get me here but I feel very lucky that it's happened to me.

The victory party continued on Monday in The Boar's Head pub in Dublin and does not look like coming to a stop any time soon with Lowry not playing in this week's World Golf Championship event in Memphis.
