Shane Lowry feels his Irish Open could have panned out differently if he had been on the other side of the draw.

He finished the tournament on 1-under after the four days at the K Club this weekend.

"Without a shadow of a doubt. I think if I had've been on the other side of the draw, I do feel I'd be out there in the last few groups now. That's the way it is. Listen, I'm not going to stand there and moan about it. That's what I feel like and if anything it gives me a bit of confidence heading into next week," he told Off The Ball's Nathan Murphy as he also looked ahead to a big summer with potential Olympic and Ryder Cup inclusion to look forward to if all goes well.

"I feel like I'm not far away from something good so I'm looking forward to the next few months and what that has to throw at me," said Lowry.
