Open champion Shane Lowry thinks an improvement in his play around the greens will see an upsurge in results in the coming weeks. 

The 32-year-old's opened with a three-under-par round of 69 at the Workday Charity Open to sit three shots off early clubhouse leader Adam Hadwin in Dublin, Ohio.

Lowry came in to this week's tournament on the back of missed cuts at the Heritage and the Colonial, while he was 60th at the Travellers' Championship.

“I’ve come back out, missed two of the three cuts, but, all in all, I feel like my game is really good," the Offaly man told The Golf Channel of his form after the restart.

"I’ve just struggled on the greens a little bit and I just need to build up a little bit of confidence. I feel like I’m right where I want to be, it’s just on the greens I need to improve.

Tee-to-green, I’ve been fine. If I can just get better on the greens, I feel I’ll be there or thereabouts. It’s all about waiting for it to happen and just not trying to force it too much.

"I sometimes can force it too much and try too hard, so it’s just about trusting the process and waiting for it all to happen.”
