Must read

Learning from the pros

We can all learn a thing or two by watching the pros in person. Just a shame that spectator-free events make such opportunities unlikely this year

The honest truth about dishonesty

"If golfers want to abuse the system, there is always a way of doing so. It's just the fact that they can get away with it and are not punished when 'rumbled' that is so annoying"

Fight for your Right*

It's fair to say that Sunday at Seminole was largely uninspiring but one thing it did spark was a gender debate with Mel Reid. Did golf miss an opportunity to showcase ALL the game has to offer?

Cautious optimism for brighter days to come follows return to golf

First round in two months a welcome break from pandemic restrictions, writes Liam Kelly
  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.

Masters Trip Prize

One lucky Irish Golfer Series competitor will win a trip of a lifetime to the 2021 US Masters. 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. The winner is chosen at the Grand Final set for the K Club in October. Prize includes flights / transfers / accommodation & Masters tickets for Tuesday (Practice day) and Wednesday (Practice day & Par 3 comp)

Over €5,000 in prizes at each event
