Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are preparing for the British Open next week in St Andrews in a practice round at Ballybunion.
At the opening in St Andrews next week, some of the best golfers in the world took advantage of Adea Manor’s participation in the JP McManus Proum to play some of the best Lynx courses in the country.
The world’s number one Scottie Scheffler played Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Rahinchi before Pro Am, and Tralee and Ballybunion were also visited by the golf elite.
Earlier this week, Woods confirmed that he would stay in Ireland for a fourth claret jug bid.
“I always loved to come to Ireland. I loved to come here for the first time. I, Payne and Marco (Mark O’Meara) were here and fishing here in Waterville. I think it was 99 years. I played Ballybunion. Pain made a hole-in-one. We had some great time, “said Woods of Adair.
Link practice here has helped him win at least one of the three claret jugs, and this week is reviving that tradition. He’s not just saying where and when he will appear. “No, I don’t want to tell you because I don’t want everyone to come down and look at us. Ah, yes. Yes, yes.”
