Can someone explain this one to me? Shane Lowry won the Irish open last weekend and of course he was ecstatic. And so he should be, he became only the third irishman to win the Open in 27 years.
This is the bit I dont get. First prize was half a million but because Lowry is an amateur it goes to the pro who came second. Why the hell cant amateurs win the prize fund? Ive gone through a few sports media sites and they all tell me the same fucking thing. Actually its the exact same paragraph they all seem to have word for word.
"While Lowry can savour a two-year exemption when he decides to turn professional, Rock's consolation was to pocket the €500,000 first prize."
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
What exactly is he savouring?
SHOW ME THE MONEY ID BE SCREAMING BUT THEN AGAIN IM ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS!
