Shane Lowry has been one of the most consistent performers over the past few years, with multiple top 10s and victories moving him firmly into the world's top 50.

However, at the beginning of the final round at the RBC Heritage (opens in new tab), whilst firmly in contention, Lowry produced a stone-cold top at the 2nd hole, with his shot from 280 yards only covering 150 of them.

Following the top, that I'm sure would have filled the club golfer with an element of smugness, Lowry would go on to make a par and remain a few shots back off the top of the leaderboard, with the lead continuously changing at Harbour Town (opens in new tab).

After making a par, the 35-year-old seemed to forget about the moment at the 2nd, with laser-like irons leading to superb birdies at the treacherous 4th, 5th and 6th.

Lowry last picked up a title at the 2019 Open Championship, with the Irishman finishing six shots ahead of Tommy Fleetwood that week at Royal Portrush (opens in new tab).
