Shane Lowry: I'm in a good group, it's going to be loud out there

Shane Lowry is a quality golfer who has high expectations of the US Open. Shane will have tough challenges, and he is also part of a group with Mickelson and Oosthuizen. Lowry is aware of challenges that await him. "I'm in a good group, it's going to be loud out there and it's going to be enjoyable," Lowry told Sky Sports News.

"He [Mickelson] got a really good reception here this week and I'm sure it will be the same tomorrow. "The last time I played with him [in a major] was in Portrush, the first two rounds of The Open, so hopefully it's a similar result this week!

"It's going to be a huge mental battle, you're going to need to hit a lot of fairways and a lot of greens. The greens are going to get firm and fast and probably get burned out a little bit. The forecast is really good, I think we've seen the golf course as easy as we're going to see it."

2016 US Open memories

Lowry had a good chance at the 2016 US Open, and he remembered what it looked like. "I do always feel like it [2016] is the one that got away, but I look at it now and think that if I hadn't done that, would I have had what it took to win in Portrush?" Lowry added.

"I'm happy with what I have there. "Obviously, I'd like to have another one and hopefully I can add to it this week. I'm playing well, my game is really good, and it's been that way for a while. It's all about staying out of my own way this week now and trying to hole a few putts, that's what this tournament is going to be all about." - he concluded. His quality says he could go far, but his opponents will not be easy at all.
