Route 66 took millions from Chicago to the US west coast for more than 60 years and it looks like the road to success for Shane Lowry and Séamus Power today after they slipped six and eight shots behind Justin Thomas in the US PGA at Southern Hills.

Lowry played like the Major champion he is for the first 10 holes, missing just one fairway and only three greens in winds gusting over 25mph as he picked up back to back birdies at the 13th and 14th to jump to within three shots of the lead on two-under.
