World no.1 golfer Brooks Koepka has been confirmed for the 6th edition of the JP McManus Pro-Am at Adare Manor, Co. Limerick on July 6th and 7th, bringing to eight of the world’s top 10 players who are now set to play the charity event.
The 29-year-old American won the 2017 US Open, before claiming at least one Major championship in each of the last three seasons, en route to the summit of golf’s world rankings.
Florida-native Koepka is the latest in an impressive list of world class players who will play at the JP McManus-owned venue this summer, among them Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Jon Rahm, 2019 British Open Champion Shane Lowry, Sergio Garcia, former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley, as well as former Major winners Graeme McDowell and Pádraig Harrington.
Koepka, whose huge distance off the tee and superb all-round game have seen him become the dominant player in the men’s game over the past three years, has won an impressive array of Major Championships: 2017 US Open, 2018 US Open, 2018 USPGA Championship, and 2019 USPGA Championship.
Pro-Am host JP McManus said he is delighted Koepka will be at Adare Manor in July:
“It’s fantastic for the Pro-Am that Brooks has committed to the event and I extend our sincere thanks to him for doing so. It promises to be very special for the spectators to see a player of his calibre in action this July and we are also extremely fortunate to have eight of the world’s top ten golfers confirmed to participate.”
The Pro-Am takes place July 6th-7th 2020 at the Tom Fazio redesigned Golf Course at Adare Manor, with charitable organisations in the Mid-West set to benefit from the Pro-Am.
