Jetting in: Shane Lowry will compete in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open after featuring at the US Open last week

Shane Lowry has just the game to triumph at next week's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Galgorm Castle, according to an Ulsterman who has the same coach as the man who made history by winning the Open at Royal Portrush.

John-Ross Galbraith, who finished best of the Irish at the recent Northern Ireland Open at the Ballymena venue is, like the Offaly man, coached by Neil Manchip and knows Lowry's abilities inside out.

"Shane playing at the Irish Open is massive. Fair play to him coming back from the States after the US Open to play," said Galbraith.
