Lowry Revved-Up To End A 12-Year Singapore Absence Contesting Porcsche Singapore Classic

Shane Lowry seems revved-up to end a 12-year absence with confirmation he will contest next month’s second hosting of the Porsche Singapore Classic.

Local organisers confirmed Lowry’s appearance in the event taking place from March 21st to 24th on the host Laguna National course on the island nation.

The $US 2.5m event will be the first of five tournaments on the DP World Tour’s ‘International Swing’ and with the event up against the Valspar Championship on the PGA Tour.

Lowry’s last visit to Singapore was for the 2012 Barclays Singapore Open where he missed the halfway cut in the then co-sanctioned European Tour and Asian Tour event however relations between the two tours clearly remained ‘strained’, as this year’s event again goes ahead in Singapore with Asian Tour involvement.

No such issues for Lowry.

“I love being able to play all over the world, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Singapore”, said Lowry in a prepared news release.

“I played in Singapore a few times earlier in my career and loved experiencing everything the city has to offer. I’ve also never played at Laguna National before but I’ve heard good things and it looks like a great test.”

News of Lowry’s Singapore visit comes as the proud Irishman dropped out of the World’s top-50 for a first occasion since early 2019, and with the now World No. 51 looking to corrent the slide at this week’s WM Phoenix Open.

Good news though for Lowry he can travel to Singapore knowing he’s exempt into April’s Masters.
