Lowry ready for The Northern Trust
Shane Lowry has said he is ready to return to action after enjoying a two-week break after his Open victory at Royal Portrush.
The world number 18 secured a six-shot win as he secured his maiden major title before then heading off to celebrate with his family and friends.
The Irishman will now return at The Northern Trust on Thursday and he will start the event 20th in the FedExCup standings.
He is now in a great position to qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta but Lowry has refused to set any targets.
"Obviously it's been an incredible couple of weeks," he said. "The win in Portrush, I didn't know whether I would actually get a chance to live something like that. That's like a dream come true almost.
"These last couple of weeks have come upon me quite quickly and now I'm back trying to play some tournament golf, but I'm looking forward to getting going. It's my first FedExCup so I'm excited.
"I'm in a nice position going into these couple of events and hopefully I can move up the board a little bit and give myself a little bit of a chance come Atlanta. I do feel like I'm ready to get back playing, but I'm not going to be putting any pressure on myself the next few weeks.
"No matter what happens, I'm not saying I'm going to settle on what I have already this year. I'm a very ambitious person and I'm a very ambitious golfer, as well, and no matter what happens the next few weeks, I'm very happy with my season so far."
