Shane Lowry might not have set the world on fire at the US PGA at Southern Hills but, just like pal Rory McIlroy, he knows he just has to remain patient and keep playing the golf he’s playing to have more chances to add to this major haul.

As McIlroy was bidding to pull off an improbable Sunday charge from nine behind, the Offaly man made 17 pars and one birdie in a one-under 69 to finish inside the top-25 without ever hitting top gear.
