Lowry And McIlroy Well Off The Pace In Dubai

The Irish golfers are six and eight shots off the lead of the DP World Tour Championship respectively.

Shane Lowry left himself with an uphill battle to compete at the DP World Tour Championship this week after a disappointing round of 73.

His one over par total is eight shots off the lead held jointly by English duo Matt Fitzpatrick and Tyrell Hatton.

The Clara man's inconsistent round included four birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.

Rory McIlroy faired only slightly better.

The Down native carded a one under 71 on the opening day of the season-ending tournament in Dubai.
