Shane Lowry feels he is close to producing something special as he heads to Augusta for The Masters this week (LIVE on eir sport 1 Thur-Sun 8pm).
The Offaly man has suffered some indifferent form in recent weeks but feels his game could be coming together at the right time.
"I feel like it’s been a long time since I won The Open, as a lot has gone on in the world," the 2019 Open champion said.
"I am still Open champion teeing up in the Masters this week and for a second time in some six months.
"Augusta National is somewhere where you will never get sick of going, but I’d have to say that the first time playing Augusta is probably the best and the most special.
"I feel like if I just keep doing what I am doing and play the waiting game and not kind of force it too much that it will happen soon.
"If it doesn’t this week then hopefully it will happen in the coming weeks after that.
"I am driving the ball very well. I am pretty happy hitting a high draw or a little cut.
"The rest of my game is pretty good. I struggled on the greens at the start of the year and feel I have got to the point now where I am happy with what I am doing with my putter.
‘If everything comes together, I think I can do something very special in the coming week. Hopefully, that will be this week."
