Offaly man shared his feelings on Twitter
Shane Lowry has backed Darren Clarke and Team Europe to shine at the 2016 Ryder Cup but on a personal level he has admitted that he is "gutted" to miss out.
The Offaly man did not qualify automatically or as a wildcard pick as Clarke finalised his team this afternoon.
Lowry took to Twitter after Team Europe was confirmed:
Gutted not to be on the @RyderCupEurope team but can't argue with the captains picks. Look forward to cheering on the lads in a few weeks.— Shane Lowry (@ShaneLowryGolf) August 30, 2016
