Irish golf superstars launch JP McManus Pro-Am 2020

Rory McIlroy was one of four leading Irish pros who launched the JP McManus Pro Am 2020 at Adare Manor on Friday morning

FOUR of Ireland’s biggest golfing names launched the sixth JP McManus Pro Am 2020 at Adare Manor this Friday morning.

Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Shane Lowry and Paul McGinley were on hand to launch the charity event which will take place on Monday, July 6 and Tuesday, July 7, 2020.

A total of €140,565,878 has been raised by the event since its inception in 1990 with all the proceeds in their entirety going to the beneficiaries.

Host venue, The Golf Course at Adare Manor, has recently undergone extensive renovations. Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Paul McGinley and Shane Lowry hit the inaugural tee shots of the wholly-reconstructed Tom Fazio design at Adare Manor at lunchtime this Friday, when they competed in a €500,000 charity match to mark the milestone occasion for Irish golf.

Among the beneficiaries from the special match will be The Rory Foundation, The McGinley Foundation, Temple Street Children’s University Hospital and the Padraig Harrington Charitable Foundation.

A star-studded line-up of golfers and celebrities will take part in the Pro Am in 2020.

Pro AM organisers have reinvented the standard ticket with a unique entrance permit. The JP McManus Pro-Am uses the  entrance cap as a ticket to the event.

Three individual caps have been produced to carry the colours of Munster, Ireland and a white cap for the neutrals. They will be used as entrance tickets once again to the JP McManus Pro-Am in 2020 as they proved a remarkable success in 2010.

By buying an entrance cap, spectators are supporting their local charities and are also getting a souvenir cap with which they can cheer on their favourite teams for many years to come.

This proved a major success in 2010 with record crowds in excess of 40,000 turning out each day at the event in Adare Manor. Further details on how to purchase your entrance cap is available from https://www.jpmcmanusproam.com/tickets
