"I grounded out well and I'm over the moon", said Lowry, who received $1.16 million for his fourth European Tour title but the first in which he led wire-to-wire.

Sterne was looking for his first European Tour victory in almost six years and appeared as if he might just produce it with six birdies on the way to the turn to take a comfortable lead but the momentum swing on the back nine and Lowry, who had led from his opening round of 62, fought back to win by one over Sterne a birdie at his final hole enough to edge ahead.

Sterne had a four-shot lead after 11 holes, but two bogeys cost him dear as Lowry fought back with birdies on 12 and 13.

Weekend winter storm sweeping from Midwest to New England
Amtrak cancelled some trains Saturday from Chicago to Washington and NY and between NY and Boston and Pennsylvania on Sunday . The storm is expected to bring 12-18 inches of snow to the Bangor area and much of eastern Maine.

Poulter is two shots further back, with Spaniard Pablo Larrazabal also in contention in fourth, six shots behind Lowry. "I obviously went out with the lead by a few and before I knew it, I was four behind".

It was Lowry's first win since the World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational in August 2015 and he is now expected to rise 35 places to world No. 40. It's not easy, it's not easy to lie down and showed a bit of bottle and a bit of character there today I thought.

Sterne, who shot 31 on the front nine, came back with bogeys on the 14th and 16th, and Lowry holed a 12-foot par putt on No. 17 that he feels won him the tournament. "I have two more events in Dubai and Saudi Arabia after that and this start is going to be a good confidence boost ahead of them".

Trump proposes deal on immigration, Pelosi calls shutdown offer a "non-starter"
Trump's remarks from the Diplomatic Room marked the second time he has addressed the nation as the partial shutdown drags on. Clyburn confirmed during the interview that there would be no negotiations until the president reopens the government.

Sterne was quick off the blocks and caught up with Lowry with birdies on his first three holes.

He recovered to birdie six, seven and eight but an eagle for Sterne on the par-five 10th kept him close enough to pounce if Lowry slips up.

Both found the fairway, but the South African pushed his second shot into the cart path on the right. I was courageous out there today. "I just tried to put him under as much pressure as I could".
