Lowry Aiming To Be Strong Off The Tee in First Major Of 2020

He takes to the course for his opening round at 4:10 Irish time.

Shane Lowry begins his bid for back-to-back major golf titles this afternoon. 

Last year's Open winner is in a group with Gary Woodland and defending champion Brooks Koepa for the opening round of the PGA Championship. 

It's being played at Harding Park in California, which Koepka has described as a "big boy course", and Lowry feels both accuracy and distance will be needed from the tee 

The Offaly man is due on course at ten-past-four Irish time - while twenty minutes later two-time PGA-winner Rory McIlroy goes out in a group that also contains world number one Justin Thomas and Tiger Woods.
