Shane Lowry: Race to Dubai win would cap an incredible year

Shane Lowry insists he is not placing himself to acquire the Rush to Dubai.
Lowry started 2019 in Abu Dhabi along with his Rolex Series success, when he stormed into his important title in front of his home fans at Royal Portrush, winning The Open with six 42, but he surpassed that achievement.
The Irishmans stellar year has assured hes firmly in contention to terminate the year as European No 1 to the very first time, and hell try to regain the lead at the peak of the Rush to Dubai standings at the Open was jeopardized by Spanish Open winner Jon Rahm last week.
Obviously Id love to pass Jon this week, but finally, it is just likely to matter whos No 1 in the end of November, said Lowry. I have lots of occasions left, I feel like my game is great enough and I feel like I will give it a good go. Im very excited about it, and it could be a terrific conclusion to what has been a great year for me.
When I win the Race to Dubai, it will be good. If I dont, I am not going to sit at home and shout about it, but obviously it could be a huge thing for me. So I will give it my best to shoot the scores.
Finally, it is likely going to come down to the last few events. Im going to continue doing what I have been doing this year. Its very exciting that Im there and I am looking forward to this challenge.
Obviously I want to keep attempting to pick up some Ryder Cup tips and maintain challenging myself every day to take the best scores I could, and just kind of keep enjoying with my golf, keep doing what Ive been doing all season, and to win the Hurry Dubai, that would kind of top off whats already been an extraordinary year.
Lowry will play the opening two rounds in Rome with house favourite Francesco Molinari, the guy he replaced as Open champion, after missing out to the May and also the Italian is currently bidding for his third win on home soil.
Molinari has memories of claiming his maiden European Tour victory if he pipped Danny Willett into the title by one stroke, and he thrilled the Milan supporters again.
I think the first win on TourI never knew it was coming and, obviously at home, I think nobody really expected me to win at the start of the week, he explained. You could almost feel that the expectations growing through the week, and it was just an amazing relief to the 18th green, seeing all the folks there celebrating, plenty of families and friends.
I could not have asked for a better first win on Tour, however, the second one was distinct. Many, many years afterwards, and different circumstances and different tastes from the beginning. I hadnt won in a few years, although I had a pretty good season .
In a home occasion, should you start well, you can feel the vibe changing and people kind of expecting you to acquire and to bring the trophy home. I just dont forget the back nine on Sunday, actually not playing my very best golf, but only grinding again and hard, enormous relief to the 18th green
