OPEN CHAMPION SHANE LOWRY SHARES PLAYING STRATEGIES ON NEW SEASON OF ‘LESSONS WITH A CHAMPION GOLFER,’ PREMIERES TODAY EXCLUSIVELY ON GOLFPASS
ORLANDO, Fla. (July 7, 2020) – A new season of Lessons with a Champion Golfer instructional series premieres exclusively today on GOLFPASS, featuring 2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry.
With his dramatic victory at the 2019 Open Championship, Lowry became the first Irishman to win a major championship on the Emerald Isle since the Royal & Ancient last hosted The Open there in the 1960s. With the win, his name immediately vaulted among the best in the world.
Hosted by noted golf instructor and GOLF Channel personality Martin Hall and produced on location at The Club at Ibis in West Palm Beach, Fla., the new season of Lessons with a Champion Golfer will be a 14-episode deep dive of instruction, providing a rare, insider’s look into Lowry’s practice regimen. He covers a selection swing methods, drills and tips used throughout his career, from bombing the driver to chip shots around the green. Lowry also shares thoughts about his mental game – thought processes during the golf swing and some of his personal traits that may go against common practices.
As with the first season of Lessons with a Champion Golfer, which featured World No. 1 Rory McIlroy, this new season also will utilize top technology, including a Swing 360 camera, specialty graphics, Toptracer and Trackman stats.
