Paul McGinley hopes to put up a competitive showing when the Irish Legends visits Seapoint Golf Links from June 23-25. 

The Sky Sports pundit has been unable to invest as much time as he’d like in his own golf game of late but that didn’t stop McGinley entering the mix as tournament host last year at Rosapenna.  

The Dubliner finished two strokes back of Phillip Price’s winning score and while accepting he’ll enter the week similarly undercooked, McGinley still believes he has the golf game to contend for the title. 

“I’m putting all the odds against myself to have a great performance but I should’ve won in Rosapenna last year and I let it slip through my fingers,” he says.  

“I think if I had a little bit more competitive golf under my belt I would’ve won there so I’m going to continue and keep giving myself chances because I enjoy doing it.  

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Seapoint but I’m really looking forward to it. I know they’ve put in a lot of investment and I love the opportunity to be around the players, like a family for the last thirty years, any chance I get.  

“I still love competitive golf, the nature of it, constructing a round, the battle of trying to get around in a score and it’s a challenge I’ll be ready to embrace at Seapoint.”
