THE line-up of professional players has been finalised for the 2022 JP McManus Pro-Am at Adare Manor on July 4 and 5 with Bill Murray completing the line-up of celebrity guests.
The ‘Groundhog Day’ and ‘Ghostbusters’ actor has been enjoying some time in the Mid West. He attended Galway v Cork in Thurles on Saturday with JP McManus and was spotted in Limerick City where he took part in a sing song in Charlie Malones pub.
2022 Masters contender Cameron Smith, 2020 Olympic Gold Medallist Xander Schauffele, and Harold Varner III are the latest professional additions to the field.
Other well known celebrities including Niall Horan, Mark Whalberg, Jamie Dornan, Harry and Jamie Redknapp are already confirmed for the star studded event.
The Pro-Am has helped raise over €140 million for charitable organisations in the Mid-West since its inception in 1990. All funds raised are distributed in their entirety to the beneficiaries.
This year’s line-up means that ten of the world’s top 11 ranked golfers are now singed up for the sold-out event, which is also being broadcast live on Sky Sports, and The Golf Channel in the USA.
The current holders of the four Major championships – Matt Fitzpatrick, Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa are lining up, alongside the likes of 15-time Major champion Tiger Woods, former Irish Ryder Cup captains Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley, four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy and 2019 Open Championship winner Shane Lowry.
Tournament host JP McManus said all at Adare Manor were looking forward to welcoming the world’s top golfers to the redesigned Golf Course.
“Quite a few of them joined us in previous years but may not have seen the work Tom Fazio and his team have done to the course since. Let’s hope for a bit of sunshine to really make what we expect to be a very special couple of days in Limerick.” he added.
Those travelling by car to Adare Manor are urged to pre-book on-site parking, which closes at midnight this Thursday.
The full field of amateurs and professionals will be entered into a draw, taking place on Saturday 2nd July, with tee-times released shortly after.
