Shane Lowry has become a household name in recent years, after winning the Open in 2019 and playing in the European Ryder Cup team in 2021 and 2023.

Lowry is one of the most accomplished players in world golf as a winner on the DP World Tour and PGA Tour, as well as an Open champion.

• Who is the caddie of Justin Rose?

But, who is the Irishman’s caddie? That man is Darren Reynolds.

Before Reynolds became Lowry’s bagman in 2023, he had Bo Martin as his caddie.

Lowry and Martin began working together in 2018, and their partnership was an immediate success, with the pair recording a sixth place finish at the Portugal Masters that year.

The partnership worked quickly, as the pair went onto one of golf’s most memorable victories in 2019, when Lowry won the Open at Royal Portrush.

But Lowry split up with Martin, who previously worked with Alex Levy, after five years in 2023. It was confirmed by announcement from the player’s management company Horizon Sports Management.

“I’ve had two caddies my whole career, and I’ve been on Tour 14 years,” Lowry later said. “I’m not exactly a caddie-firer or anything. This is my third caddie.”

His third caddie Reynolds was on the bag during the Ryder Cup in 2023, where Lowry tasted success for the first time against Team USA in Rome.

In the past, Reynolds has worked with fellow Irishmen Paul McGinley and Paul Dunne, as well as DP World Tour winner Antoine Rozner.
