World Number One Scottie Scheffler and three-time Major winner Jordan Spieth headline the latest batch of star power confirmed for July’s JP McManus Pro-Am.

With Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm amongst those already confirmed, tournament officials have added more star names from America with Scheffler and Spieth set to be joined by Patrick Cantlay, Rickie Fowler, Jason Kokrak, Sam Burns and Tom Hoge at Adare Manor on July 4th-5th.

You can see why the latest announcement arrived with a caption of ‘this is going to be major’ given this week’s Memorial Tournament, one of the most prestigious stops on the PGA Tour, would struggle to hold a candle to the field assembling for JP’s Limerick showpiece.

“It’s incredible to see how many players from across the world are coming to play in the Pro-Am and I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of them for offering up their time to help us raise money for charitable organisations in need,” said JP McManus.

“As always, this event would be nothing without the hundreds of volunteers who help us run it smoothly, so I also extend a sincere thank you to them.

“Finally, I would urge anybody holding a ticket cap who is planning to drive to the event to please visit our website (www.jpmcmanusproam.com) and pre-book either paid on-site parking, or the free park and ride from Limerick Racecourse.”

As things stand, 9 of the world’s top-11 players will play in the Pro-Am, including 19 of the 24 who competed at last September’s Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits with the likes of Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Shane Lowry joined by LPGA winner Leona Maguire and stars of stage and screen, Mark Wahlberg, Jamie Dornan and Niall Horan, plus many more.

If you haven’t secured your ticket for the sold out event, a final ticket tender has been announced with 100 tickets going to the highest bidders (minimum €250 per ticket).

You can bid for a cap at www. www.jpmcmanusproam.com/ticket-auction-bid/

All money received will go straight to the charity kitty for the Pro-Am which has raised over  €140 million for the charity sector in Ireland’s Mid-West region since the first fundraising event was played in 1990.
