Bjorn follows in the footsteps of his vice captain Lee Westwood in visiting the five-star resort this week, with Westwood raving about the “spectacular” County Limerick hotel on a visit with girlfriend Helen Story.

The resort, renovated and remodelled to the tune of upwards of €200m, is the odds-on favourite to be awarded the honour of hosting the 2026 Ryder Cup.
