With both the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and The Open Championship taking place in Ireland this month, at Lahinch and Royal Portrush respectively, there is further good news for Irish golf fans with confirmation that the world’s second ranked player, American Dustin Johnson, will compete at the JP McManus Pro-Am at Adare Manor next year.
Johnson, who beat fellow Pro-Am participant Offaly’s Shane Lowry to win the 2016 US Open, will be making his second appearance at the charity event, having previously taken part in 2010. Since then, the American has claimed 22 professional victories, has been world no.1, and this year was runner-up at both The Masters and the PGA Championship.
The sixth staging of the JP McManus Pro-Am will see Johnson joined by nine-time winner on the PGA Tour, Matt Kuchar, 2010 US Open champion Graeme McDowell, and Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello, a three-time European Tour event winner, who have all confirmed their participation at the Co. Limerick venue on 6th-7th July 2020.
These four big-name players will join Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose, all of whom previously committed to the fundraising event, with further golfing starts set to be confirmed in the coming weeks and months.
The Pro-Am takes place at the Tom Fazio redesigned Golf Course at Adare Manor Hotel, which reopened in 2017 after extensive refurbishment.
Tickets for the JP McManus Pro-Am are in the form of caps which cost €50, with the cap allowing access to the course for both days of the Pro-Am.
It has been announced that the current early bird offer will end when 3,000 more caps are sold, with prices then increasing to €100 per cap.
Caps are available to purchase on www.jpmcmanusproam.com/tickets.
