Mixed fortunes for Irish at Travelers Championship

Harrington makes cut, Lowry goes home

There were mixed fortunes for the Irish golfers at the Travelers Championship as Padraig Harrington made the cut but Shane Lowry was forced to make alternative plans for his weekend.

Three-time major champion continue a recent run of good form by posting a one-under par 69 on Friday to finish right on the cut-line as he prepares for his bid for an Olympic medal in Rio.

Lowry's woes however, continued as a 71 meant his total after two rounds of even par was a shot below Harrington and unfortunately for the Offaly man, a stroke the wrong side of the cut.

The 29-year-old has adjusted his playing schedule to include this competition and two others in order to try and make Europe's Ryder Cup team for next month's showdown at Hazeltine.

However, Lowry will now have to produce good finishes at the Wyndham Championship in two weeks' time or at the Made in Denmark tournament a week later in order to have a chance to qualifying automatically.

The tournament is led by four players - Australia's Marc Leishman, the US pair of Daniel Berger and Russell Henley, and South Africa's Tyrone Van Aswegen - on a total of seven under par.

In a packed leaderboard, another four sit just one shot off the lead on six under while a further five players lie another stoke back.
