Lowry falls out of Phoenix Open contention

One-over 72 sees him lie seven shots off pace

Shane Lowry's chances of winning the Waste Management Phoenix Open are almost over after a disappointing one-over-par round of 72 on Saturday saw him fall seven shots behind leader Danny Lee.

After an opening round of 65 and a 70 on Friday, the Offaly native was right in the hunt but unfortunately on 'moving day' the only moving Lowry did was back down the field.

Lowry sits on six-under for the tournament with Lee on -13 after a round which featured six birdies and two bogeys.

The TPC Scottsdale course also set a record on Saturday with the 201,003 crowd the highest to have ever attended a single day's golf anywhere in the world.

Lee has a three-shot lead with Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama ready to pounce on -10 after rounds of 70 and 68 respectively.

Bryce Molder lies a further shot back after firing a best-of-the-day 64 to move to nine under.

Overnight leader James Hahn had a day to forget, carding a three-over-par 74 to slip out of contention.

Phil Mickelson meanwhile thrilled the packed crowd by shooting a bogey-free 65 to sit five shots off the pace heading into the final round.
