Shane Lowry has had an incredible career, but who is the Irishman’s wife?

From winning The Open in 2019 and competing for Europe in multiple Ryder Cups, Lowry has established himself as one of the most decorated European players.

Since turning pro in 2009, he has worked his way to the top with a helping hand from his current caddie Darren Reynolds and coach Neil Manchip.

But there has always been another figure spotted throughout his time in the professional ranks, as he has always had his wife by his side.

So who is Shane Lowry’s wife? Here’s everything you need to know about his partner Wendy Horner.

• Who is Luke Donald’s wife?

• Who is Max Homa’s wife?

Shane Lowry’s wife Wendy Horner

Shane Lowry first met his wife Wendy Horner on a “random night out” back in 2012.

She has been with him almost ever since, with Lowry popping the question on a beach in Dubai in 2014.

Two years later in 2016, the couple got married in New York, the city where had previously enjoyed a poignant holiday.

It wasn’t a big wedding, with Lowry revealing to the Irish Independent that the guest list was spiralling out of control. The couple preferred a more intimate ceremony.

“The guest list [was spiralling] and I get stressed very easily, so we decided the big white wedding at home was not what we wanted,” he said.

“Anyone who knows Wendy knows that she doesn’t like the limelight or anything like that… It was really all very chilled.”

Wendy has worked as a nurse whilst being a contest support for Lowry through the ups-and-downs of over a decade on tour.

• Who is Jon Rahm’s wife?

The couple split their time between Clara, Lowry’s home town in County Offaly, Ireland, and Florida. They have two daughters together, named Iris and Ivy.

The eldest, Iris, was born in 2017 and was present as Lowry won the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in 2019.

“I’ll be honest, as soon as we had Iris, that’s what I’d dreamed about,” Lowry said afterwards. “To have both Wendy and Iris in Abu Dhabi as I won was just dream stuff, something I wouldn’t really let myself think about until it actually happened because you’d only get emotional thinking about it.”

Wendy and Iris saw Lowry win the Open at Royal Portrush later that year. The couple’s youngest daughter, Ivy, was born in September 2021.
