When did the points race start?
How is that right after the last 13 months he has had?

Even ignoring the two wins he has had a few top tens and was even top 15 at the weekend just passed.

Qualification only started in September or around then. He is 15th on the world points list currently in the rankings.

Playing with Sergio and Brooks in Saudi this week, nice grouping for him - getting used to playing with world no. 1's and other major winners!! Nice!

my guess is as Open champion he will probably get to play with Tiger at the first round of Augusta -

Defending champion normally plays with the US Amateur champion +1 if I remember correctly.

Three birdies in a row for Shane to get to 1 under for the tournament. Still well down the field, but nice to see him playing better.

Couple of birdies since then. +1 for the day playing the 18th (his 9th). Tough course this week.

Edit: Eagle on 18 to turn -1.

So Shane will be keeping hold of the Claret Jug for at least one more year after the cancellation of this year`s Championship due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
