The Clara man shot himself in to contention with a superb 66 on Saturday.

Shane Lowry came close to challenging for silverware once again this weekend only for a costly back nine to derail his charge at the Singapore Classic.

The Offaly golfer fired a near flawless third round 66 to move in to contention on the DP World Tour event.

Lowry made a perfect start to his final round, playing the first 11 holes in five under par.

However a run of three straight dropped shots, followed by a double bogey-bogey finish left the Clara man in a tie for 29th.

The title was won by Jesper Svensson who beat Kiradech Aphinbarnrat in a play off after both players finished on 17 under par.

Tom McKibbin missed the cut after rounds of 71 and 74 on Thursday and Friday.

Meanwhile, Padraig Harrington says he performs best when his 'back is to the wall' after the Dubliner bounced back from a double bogey at the 16th to win the Hoag Classic on the Champions Tour last night.

Harrington birdied his final two holes to secure a one-shot victory on 14-under-par.

It's his seventh career victory on the Champions Tour.
