REACTION: Offaly's Shane Lowry is tearing up the US Open

Finally, some good news.

Shane Lowry, massive football fan that he is, will not have been happy with Saturday's showing in Bordeaux that isn't stopping him putting in the performance of his life at the US Open.

The Offaly man is currently -6 as he closes out his delayed third round, three shots ahead of American Dustin Johnson, and is flying the flag for Ireland having seen his compatriot Rory McIlroy fail to make the cut.

There's still a long way to go - an entire round - but the 29-year-old is well placed to seal a famous victory and restore some sporting optimism ahead of Wednesday's clash with Italy.
