Shane Lowry feels good about Open win in the future
The Republic's Shane Lowry believes he has the ability to win the Open Championship in the future.
The 27-year-old capped a good week at Royal Liverpool by storming up the leaderboard on the final day to finish 10 under with a superb seven-under-par 65.
As he left the 18th for the clubhouse, his 278 aggregate put him comfortably inside the top 10 and on course for his best finish in a Major.
Lowry, runner-up to Rory McIlroy at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in May, said: "To shoot 65 in the final round of a Major, especially when you're looking at the top of the leaderboard, makes me feel good about myself.
"I know if I have a chance down the line that is there, I can play the golf. I'm very comfortable in these surroundings. I love links golf and I think I'm good in bad conditions.
"I'm hopefully going to play another 15 or 20 Opens in my career.
"I think I could do it down the line. If I give myself the chance to do it, I know I can do it on Sunday."
Lowry's birdie on the 18th was one of seven in his bogey-free final round.
