After seeing him fight at the PGA Championship, a tournament he couldn’t finish, Tiger Woods will be back next week in an unofficial tournament: the JP McManus Pro-Am.
Tiger Woods returns to competition this week, in an unofficial tournament. He will indeed be one of the many stars participating in the JP McManus Pro-Am at Adare Manor in Ireland.
His last tournament participation dates back to the PGA Championship, a tournament he could not finish, suffering too much from his leg after a third round in 79. The Tiger did not take part in the US Open, third major of the season, in order to ensure participation in the best conditions in the 150th The Open Championship.
The 150th The Open Championship will take place in two weeks, July 14-17 at the prestigious Old Course in Saint Andrews. We recall that Tiger Woods won two of his three titles at the British Open in Saint Andrews in 2000 and 2005.
We hope that Tiger Woods will make us dream during this historic edition of the British Open, he who had played under par during his first round in Augusta, the first tournament played after his car accident. He had then finished the event in 47th position, after a more difficult weekend. He had returned cards of 71-74-78-78.
This 36-hole Pro-Am will bring together a large number of players, each with more prestigious names than the other: Thomas Bjorn, Matt Fitzpatrick, Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Ian Woosnam. They will be associated with three amateur players during two days of competition, some stars like Mark Wahlberg or Niall Horan having made the trip.
The course designed by Robert Trent Jones will also host the Ryder Cup in 2027.
Each year the JP McManus Pro-Am raises many funds for various charities: Alzheimer Society, Daughters of Charity and St. Joseph’s Foundation.
