The full field of professional players has been announced for the 2022 JP McManus Pro-Am, taking place at Adare Manor on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th July, immediately after the conclusion of the Horizon Irish Open.

2022 Masters contender Cameron Smith, 2020 Olympic Gold Medallist Xander Schauffele, and Harold Varner III are the latest professional additions to the field, and they are joined in the final announcement by another well-known amateur – Hollywood star Bill Murray of Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day.

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 in the UK and Ireland and on The Golf Channel in the USA.

The current holders of the four Major championships – Matt Fitzpatrick, Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa are lining up, alongside the likes of 15-time Major champion Tiger Woods, former Irish Ryder Cup captains Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley, four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy and 2019 Open Championship winner Shane Lowry.

Leona Maguire will make the journey home to take part and a number of the rebel golfers from the LIV Golf participants will also be flying in from Oregon including Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell.

That is as impressive a field of golfers as has perhaps ever been assembled in this country and it promises to be one of the events of the year, with an edge from having the rebels involved as well.

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.

“We are 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,” said Tournament host JP McManus.

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