Shane Lowry is satisfied with his opening round of action at this year's Irish Open.

The Offaly man finished on 1-under after Day 1 at the K Club, with the leading pack a couple of shots in advance, and has no complaints about his start.

"I felt good. I hit the ball really well. I hit a lot of good iron shots, especially on my back-nine," he told Off The Ball's Nathan Murphy.

"I'm happy with how the day went. I feel like I probably should be at least two or three better but they don't give out trophies on Thursday. I'm in the tournament, the scoring isn't too hectic out there so I'm looking forward to the next few days."   

Lowry is also satisfied based on the conditions on course this afternoon.

"I don't see anyone shooting really low out there today. It's quite tricky, it's windy, the greens are quite tough to putt holes on, so I'm pretty happy where I'm sitting right now," he said.
