Do the Americans know what they’re in for? The home side in the Ryder Cup might think they have it all sewn up when it comes to supporters on the windy banks of Lake Michigan. But the Europeans are coming – and they have a secret weapon in the form of Shane Lowry and his legendary gift for teamwork, honed on the football pitch and forged in the Faithful fields.

For Lowry, this is the dream of a lifetime and a chance to bring his entire skillset into the mix, using not only his supreme golfing talent but also his persuasiveness, his magnetic gift for making connections – and his renowned love of the craic.
