Five-time Major champion Phil Mickelson has been unveiled this morning as the latest addition to the stellar line up of golfers that will take part in the JP McManus Pro-Am at Adare Manor in 2020.
Ryder Cup stars Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm, Henrik Stenson and Paul Casey have also been announced today.
The group will join players including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Niall Horan and Mark Wahlberg in Limerick in 2020.
The newest additions to the tournament field are no strangers to success in their individual careers, with Garcia and Stenson also being Major champions. Rahm is the 2017 Irish Open champion, while Paul Casey is a 13-time winner on the European Tour and won the Valspar Championship in America this year.
It’s Mickelson, however, alongside Woods, that will be the likely biggest attraction. His last tournament visit to Ireland was back at the 2006 Ryder Cup in the K Club. His 45 PGA Tour wins is the ninth highest of all time, while he has claimed three of golf’s four Major championships and finished runner up in the other, the US Open, six times.
He has been inside the world’s top 50 for 25 years and inside the World Top 10 for 700 weeks.
“It’s fantastic to have more of the game’s top players joining what is an ever-increasing line-up at Adare Manor,” said tournament Host JP McManus.
“I have been hugely impressed with the manner of their various victories in recent years and we are very grateful to them for lending their support to the Pro-Am next year.”
Mickelson, Rahm and Garcia will be making their debuts at the JP McManus Pro-Am, while Casey and Stenson previously played in 2005 and 2010 respectively.
The tournament takes place July 6th – 7th 2020 at the Tom Fazio redesigned Golf Course at Adare Manor. The course, along with the Adare Manor Hotel, reopened last year after an extensive refurbishment which earned the hotel the prestigious ‘Global Hotel of the Year’ award in the Virtuoso ‘Best of the Best Awards 2018’ in Las Vegas.
Charitable organisations in the Mid-West will benefit from the Pro-Am, with millions raised since the event was first held in 1990. More celebrity and professional announcements will be made in the coming months.
Pro-Am ticket caps are currently priced at €50, which admits holders to both days of the tournament. Tickets for the 2020 JP McManus Pro-Am are on sale at www.jpmcmanusproam.com/tickets
