Lowry has won a Rolex Series title once before at the 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA.

“It’s two more days left and then the end of a long year-and-a-half, I suppose, long couple of years.”

“I’m looking forward to giving everything and leaving it on the course this weekend and hopefully I’m there near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday afternoon.

“I feel like my game is in good shape and I feel like I know my way around this place and I know how to play here. I’m happy to be top of the leaderboard, late tee time tomorrow and I’m looking forward to the weekend.”

Joining him in the lead are England’s Sam Horsfield (66) and American John Catlin (65).

Horsfield is looking for a first Rolex Series win to add to his two European Tour wins.

“I definitely don’t feel like I’m out of place or do not belong here and obviously I feel like my game is really good. Looking forward to the weekend.

“I’ve definitely given myself a lot of opportunities the last two days and I just want to continue to do the same thing.”

Catlin has recorded three wins in European Tour events over the past fifteen months and is also looking for his first Rolex Series win.

“It’s definitely nice to be able to look yourself in the mirror and say: I’ve been here before and I can do it again. That kind of kept me steady here on the back nine.

“We’ve got two more rounds to go and hopefully I can stay confident and keep hitting good golf shots.”
