Shane Lowry remarks during the Singapore Classic regarding the referees.

At the Singapore Classic on the DP World Tour, Shane Lowry feels as though the referees have been watching him the entire week.

After making the lengthy trip from The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass to Laguna National Golf & Country Club for the Singapore Classic, Lowry, 36, has been struggling with jet lag in recent days.

Despite getting little sleep, the former Open champion, who placed T19 at The Players last week, has made his way into the Singapore Classic.

On Saturday, Lowry shot a strong 66 to get to 8 under par and trail 54-hole leader David Micheluzzi by five strokes.

Taking a one-stroke lead over English players Andy Sullivan and Sam Bairstow is the Australian.

Paul Casey of LIV Golf was invited to the tournament by a sponsor, and he is making good use of it as he is currently 10-under par.

Earlier this week, Casey disclosed the only reason he chose to sign up for LIV Golf.

Following the round, Lowry hurried into the Sky Sports Green Room, where athletes can air their grievances.

One of the quicker players, Lowry, did not hold back when he revealed to shock that he was on the clock:

“(Laughs) I feel like the referees have been watching me all week. Probably not the right time to say this. This week has felt a lot like work to me, which is not who I am. Obviously, I don’t believe it to be me. We’ve experienced some difficult times. However, I’ve been working a lot more than usual, which is unusual for me.”
Lowry hasn’t been penalized for slow play this week, despite feeling that way.

The Irishman acknowledged that he has been experiencing jetlag this entire week.

Lowry added:

“I go to bed at around ten o’clock every morning, having woken up at around three or four in the morning. I’ve been attempting to sleep by going to bed as late as possible, but it hasn’t been successful. This week, I haven’t gotten much sleep. However, I really can’t hold anyone else accountable because I chose to come here.”

In September 2022, Lowry will be vying for his first title since the BMW PGA Championship, making it his seventh DP World Tour championship.
