Offaly's Shane Lowry conjured up a moment of magic at the British Masters today.

The Clara native could hardly have started his round any worse with two bogeys and a double bogey in the opening four holes but got back on track at the fifth.

Lowry's approach to the 170-yard par three went right at the flag, despite the blustery conditions at Walton Heath, and bounced twice before nestling at the bottom of the cup.

Watch below:

Another eagle followed at the 11th and he eventually carded a 71 and should make the weekend on two over par.

Padraig Harrington and Paul Dunne are still out on the course and are showing their incredible short game skills.
