2027 Host Adare Manor Shines at JP McManus Pro-Am
There's still five years until it's turn as Ryder Cup host, but Adare Manor is already shining.
The County Limerick venue stepped into the spotlight this week as host to the 2022 JP McManus Pro-Am, earning rave reviews in the process from Ryder Cup team members from both sides of the pond.
“I’m just blown away by what today is and what this weekend and week has been,” two-time Ryder Cup star Justin Thomas said. “It’s going to be impeccable. The golf course is beautiful, it seems like it’s great for spectators."
Team Europe stalwart Jon Rahm echoed Thomas's comments.
“[Tom] Fazio has done an amazing redesign of the golf course," Rahm said. "It's beautiful and this golf course can be made as easy as they want and as hard as they want. It's the beauty of a good challenge."
And while Rahm noted the course layout leans more toward typical styles found in the U.S. vs the classic links, the Spaniard was excited about the the atmosphere the local Irish fans would bring in five years time.
“We will have the Irish crowd, core of the crowd being Irish, supporting the European team,” Rahm said, “and we all know how the Irish can create a good atmosphere and a good time, and it will be really, really fun.”
The charity event took place Monday and Tuesday, with a number U.S. and European team players in attendance including World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, Collin Morikawa, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. The USA's Xander Schauffele walked away Champion, five strokes clear of the field at -10.
