The Bridgestone Order of Merit returns this season in what will be a sprint race over just four events.

The Mullingar Scratch Trophy (15-16 August), the Munster Stroke Play (Cork, 5-6 September), the Connacht Stroke Play (Portumna, 19-20 September) and the AIG Irish Close Championship at Rosapenna from 9-11 October make up the series this season.

Alan Kelly, Communications Manager with the Golfing Union of Ireland said: “We are thrilled to have the support of Bridgestone for the Order of Merit series again this season. Having a sponsor like Bridgestone helps us to enhance the profile of our events and I know from talking to the players that they very much appreciate their involvement and support.”


Colm Conyngham, Marketing and Public Relations Manager with Bridgestone Ireland said: “In these challenging times we are very pleased that the Bridgestone Order of Merit is proceeding and we are very happy to give our ongoing support. We hope it will continue to highlight the incredible emerging golf talent in Ireland and be of benefit to them at the early part of their careers.”

Rob Brazill (Naas) captured the 2019 Bridgestone Order of Merit title and has signalled his intention to play all four championships in the order of merit this year.
