Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry to team up at Zurich Classic

mcilroy lowry

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland and Shane Lowry of Ireland are entering next month’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans, the PGA Tour’s only team competition.

McIlroy has never played the tournament at TPC Louisiana, which has been a team event since 2017.

While McIlroy and Lowry have been Ryder Cup teammates in the past, they only played one session together, a loss to Tony Finau and Harris English in fourball in 2021.

The tournament is organized by the Fore!Kids Foundation, whose chief executive, Steve Worthy, made the announcement of McIlroy’s participation Monday.

“Both of these players have competed for Europe in Ryder Cup competition, so they are very accustomed to team play,” Worthy said in a statement. “It’s always fun to see close friends partner in our unique format, and with their experience they will be both fan and on-course favorites.”

McIlroy’s best finish stateside this year was a T19 at The Players Championship. He also won the Dubai Desert Classic in January. Lowry had a T4 finish at the Cognizant Classic and placed third at the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this month.

The Zurich Classic is slated for April 25-28.
