Tackling the question; has golf been the world’s worst-coached game?

There is a growing army of enlightened coaches out there who have moved from simple swing developers to performance-focused experts, adept in all the different aspects of the game

When any fix will do

For some of us, there's just no substitute for live sport and with golf postponed for the foreseeable, people are willing to give just about anything a shot to get their fix #COVID-19

Is golf in the Republic next to fall in the COVID-19 battle?

Those in charge of grassroots golf in the UK and Northern Ireland have called on courses to temporarily close their gates to the casual golfer. Is the Republic of Ireland next?
  1. The Irish Golfer Event Series has released an exciting 2020 schedule ahead of its return to the K Club’s Smurfit Course on Friday April 17th.

Irish Golfer Events, sponsored by Waterford are singles stableford competitions open to both men and women. The maximum handicap for men is 24 and ladies is 36.

Category winners from each event (3 winners per event) will once again qualify to the Grand Final on the Palmer Ryder Cup Course at the K Club which will be held on October 16th 2020.  One lucky participant from the event series will also be selected at random during our Grand Final to win a trip of a lifetime to the 2021 US Masters.

As in previous years the Series will touch all four corners of Ireland and be played across some stunning venues with a couple of exciting new additions added to this year’s calendar.

For those of you unfamiliar with our events, here’s the run-down on all you need to know ahead of this year’s Series:

Nature Valley Order of Merit

If you don’t qualify automatically for the Grand Final as one of the 42 category winners from one of the 14 events, you can always qualify through the Nature Valley Order of Merit. Your best 4 scores across the year will be counted and the Top-10 players not already qualified for the Grand Final will claim a place at the K Club in October.

The two Best Gross scores from the season not already qualified for the Grand Final will also progress to the K Club in October where the field will be made up of 40 players vying for the title of Irish Golfer Grand Champion 2020.

All you have to do is complete the registration form at check-in and you’re in the draw to walk amongst the azaleas of Augusta National next April.
