The Golf Course at Adare Manor

In great news for those without a precious cap, Virgin Media will show both days of next week’s JP McManus Pro-Am live on free-to-air TV.

Coverage of the two day event on July 4th and 5th begins on Monday at 2pm on Virgin Media Two, giving fans the chance to witness the latest on-course appearance of 15-time Major winner Tiger Woods, amongst a plethora of other stars from the worlds of sport, stage and screen.

2022 Masters contender Cameron Smith, 2020 Olympic Gold Medallist Xander Schauffele, and Harold Varner III were the latest professional additions to the field for the Pro-Am, and they were joined in the final announcement by a well-known amateur – Hollywood great Bill Murray.

The line-up means that 10 of the world’s top 11 ranked golfers are now confirmed for the sold-out event, which is also being broadcast live on Sky Sports and the Golf Channel.

The current holders of the four Major championships – Matt Fitzpatrick, Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa are lining up, alongside the likes Woods, former Irish Ryder Cup captains Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley, four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy and 2019 Open Championship winner Shane Lowry.

Tournament host, Mr. JP McManus, was delighted to confirm the final professional field ahead of the sixth staging of the charity event: “We’re privileged to be joined by the world’s greatest golfers; those who have achieved so much in their careers and some incredible personalities to augment the occasion. We’re looking forward to welcoming them to the redesigned Golf Course at Adare Manor, quite a few of them joined us in previous years but may not have seen the work Tom Fazio and his team have done to the course since. Let’s hope for a bit of sunshine to really make what we expect to be a very special couple of days in Limerick.”

The internationally recognised Pro-Am has helped raise over €140 million for charitable organisations in the Mid-West region of Ireland since its inception in 1990. All funds raised are distributed in their entirety to the beneficiaries.

The full field of amateurs and professionals will be entered into a draw, taking place on Saturday 2nd July, with tee-times released shortly after.
