Last year was a good one for Ireland's Shane Lowry.

The Offaly golfer entered the world rankings' Top 20 at one point - he currently sits 21st - and enjoyed victory at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in August.

Part of that victory in the European Tour was recognised with this approach shot through the trees winning the shot of 2015 with Lowry describing it as a shot he "will never forget" after coming top of the voting.
