It’s the start of the Irish Open this week to which there will be an illustrious field of Ryder Cup players and Major Champions. The €2million event has attracted the attention from around the world and they will be coming to the glorious Carton House Golf Club.
There will be no fewer than 79 European Tour Winners teeing it up this week and seven players with 11 major titles between them also trying to get into form before The Open championship in a few weeks time.
The 2012 Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazábal will also be teeing it up having won the event back in 1990, he will have four of that team who won in Medinah – Molinari, McIlroy, McDowell and Paul Lawrie.
