Shane Lowry first burst onto the scene in 2009 when, as an amateur, he won the European Tour's Irish Open. Since that famous victory, he has secured the 2019 Open Championship, as well as the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Throughout his successes, the Irishman has had his wife, Wendy Honner, by his side. Get to know her here.

Who Is Shane Lowry's Wife?

Shane and Wendy first met on a "random night out" back in 2012. Only two years later, on a beach in Dubai, the former Champion Golfer of the Year would propose, with the couple eventually getting married in New York in 2016.

According to Shane, it was a small ceremony because the guest list began spiralling: "The guest list [was spiralling] and I get stressed very easily, so we decided the big white wedding at home was not what we wanted.

“Anyone who knows Wendy knows that she doesn’t like the limelight or anything like that… It was really all very chilled," Lowry told the Irish Independent.

Together, the pair live in Clara, County Offaly, Ireland, as well as in Florida, and also have two daughters, Iris and Ivy.

After claiming victory in Abu Dhabi in 2019, Shane stated: “I’ll be honest, as soon as we had Iris, that’s [winning] what I’d dreamed about. To have both Wendy and Iris in Abu Dhabi as I won was just dream stuff, something I wouldn’t really let myself think about until it actually happened because you’d only get emotional thinking about it.

"But ever since Iris was born, that’s one of the things I’d always hoped for, for them to come out to me on the 18th green at a tournament. Because that would mean only one thing – I was a winner.”

Wendy and Iris were also in attendance at Royal Portrush to see Lowry win his first Major Championship at the 2019 Open.
