    Lowery was born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1960. He began playing golf at a young age and achieved success when he won the Birmingham Golf Association Junior and State Junior. After high school, Lowery attended the University of Alabama, where he played on the Alabama Crimson Tide golf team.

    After graduating from college, Lowery turned professional in 1983. In 1994 Lowery achieved his most successful season on the PGA Tour, finishing the season in 12th place on the money list.  One of his most memorable times on the PGA Tour was not due to his golfing prowess. It was due to a seagull which stole his ball at the Players Championship in 1998. Lowery was allowed to replace the ball in the position from where it was stolen.

    Although he didn’t win, Lowery produced a memorable performance at the The International in 2002 when he finished the 71st hole with an albatross. Five years later, Lowery missed out on playing for much of the 2007 season when he injured his wrist. A win at the 2008 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, on his return, meant that he managed to secure a two year exemption for the Tour.

    As of the end of 2014, Lowery had achieved three wins on the PGA Tour, amassing total prize money of $15,121,960.
