Lowry's lead in Abu Dhabi down to 1
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) Irish golfer Shane Lowry followed his opening 10-under 62 with a fighting 70 at the Abu Dhabi Championship to limit his shrinking lead to one stroke on Thursday.
Lowry started nervously with bogeys on two of his first three holes, then held off South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Richard Sterne thanks to sublime play on the par-3s. He's birdied the par-3s six times and parred the other two.
He also enjoyed some good saves, lifting himself out of a deep greenside bunker at No. 10 to within eight feet, and chipping from rough at the back of 14 to six feet. Lowry also narrowly missed birdie chances on 11 and 13.
