Former Irish Open Champ Shane Lowry yesterday helped launch the 2011 Lee Valley Scratch Cup which takes place on the 16th and 17th of April. Under crystal blue skies Lowry along with fellow pro Dara Lernihan and prospective scratch cup contenders Andy Hogan and Seanie Barry treated the hundreds of spectators who came out to see them to a wonderful exhibition of top class golf. The Esker Hills man who returned from a wrist injury recently showed that he is in the form to add to his European Tour titles with a five under par round around the exacting Lee Valley layout.
The Lee Valley Scratch Cup is set to attract the cream of Irish amateur golf next weekend coming as it does, just one week before the first major amateur championship of the year.
