Golf Australia Express : GA Express 200
WORDS BY ADRIAN BALLANTYNE I T WILL be with mixed emotions that Shane Lowry rolls up the driveway at Firestone Country Club this week. Lowry returns to the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational as both a winner and a loser, depending on your outlook. And how he handles the pressure that accompanies both positions will be one of this week’s most intriguing storylines. First and foremost, he’s the defending champion, having fired a final-round 66 to overhaul Justin Rose and Jim Furyk and hold off Bubba Watson for a maiden PGA Tour title last year, vaulting him to a then career-high 19th in the world rankings. But he also arrives in Ohio for his first outing since that crushing final-round collapse at the US Open, when he shot just one birdie while carding more bogeys (seven) than his other three rounds combined to surrender the 54-hole lead with a 76 and gift Dustin Johnson his first major title. And therein lies one of golf’s – and indeed sport’s – greatest challenges: swallowing a shattering disappointment and dealing with the constant reminders in the aftermath, as you front the media and the public at your next event.
