Golf Abu Dhabi: Pushed to the limit, Lowry narrowly wins


By playing -10 on the 1st day of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, Shane Lowry struck a big blow in this tournament of resumption of the European tour in 2019, and took 3 shots ahead of his first pursuers.

This feat allowed the Irishman to keep the head of the tournament until the 4th day and to pocket the victory at once only after a close fight with the South African Richard Sterne who cracked on the 18th (2nd woodcut 5 unscrewed on the right). Of the five French who passed the cut (out of 7), none finished in the top 10. Note however the good form of Mike Lorenzo Vera (despite a strong sore throat) with a last lap in -4 which gives hope for good results. to come up. Hébert and Perez also showed good dispositions. The French number one, Alex Levy in search of result and confidence, finished at the bottom of the table.

Next tournament this weekend in Dubai with the hoped-for return of Victor Dubuisson, the nugget of French golf, after long months of absence._AH
