Winning a PGA Tour event is hard work. So, too, is this recovery shot.

Or at least it's supposed to be. But don't tell that to Shane Lowry, the 28-year-old Irishman who won his first PGA Tour title at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with two incredible escapes from the rough.

First was this recovery shot at the par-4 10th from the rough somewhere on No. 9 to 2 feet.

He found more trouble left of the 18th fairway, but he hit another jaw-dropping shot to 11 feet for a closing birdie.
