Ireland's Shane Lowry topped the list of U.S. Open qualifiers a day after missing out by a shot in qualifying automatically for next month's championship.
Rory McIlroy put aside the anguish in his private life to win the European Tour's flagship BMW PGA Championship on Sunday.
The double major winner came from seven shots back at the start of the final round to shoot a 6-under 66 and win by 1 stroke with an overall 14-under 274 on the Wentworth course.
Shane Lowry birdied his closing two holes for a 2-under 70 Friday to join Thomas Bjorn in the lead after the second round of the BMW PGA Championship.
Thomas Bjorn set a course record at Wentworth with a 10-under-par 62 on the opening day of the BMW PGA Championship on Thursday.
Shane Lowry had not thought much about the Irish Open until he saw the picture posted this week on Twitter.
Shane Lowry got into the Match Play Championship by the slimmest of margins, all because of a birdie putt thousands of miles away from his home in Ireland.
The longer the holes at the Mission Hills golf course, the better Louis Oosthuizen and Adam Scott seemed to play.
"I have been messing about here and there with putters, and pulled this one out, got the cobwebs off it," he said.
"I'm happy but I know I am going to be sitting in my hotel room tonight and the 13th hole is going to be going through my head," Lowry said.
