If there is one fully established charity tournament on the calendar, as if it were just another on the DP World Tour, that is the JP McManus Pro-Am, which started over 30 years ago and continues to attract many top players of the world.
Since 2005 it has been held at Adare Manor, where it was held in view of its success, to which the presence of Tiger Woods since the beginning of the 2000s contributed decisively. The presence of the public skyrocketed... and donations.
Only two rounds are played (Monday and Tuesday), but this Pro-Am - of course, Bill Murray participates - is a mandatory stop in preparation for the British Open for golfers like Tiger Woods, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Rafa Cabrera Bello...
If we limit ourselves to the classification of professional players, Schauffele clearly commands with 64 strokes (-8). The Olympic champion not only maintains his usual regularity to be at the top in each event, but also just won the Travelers.
Rafa Cabrera signed 71 and Jon Rahm 73. However, the focus was on the Tiger.
Tiger Woods, focus
Woods' match was constantly accompanied by a crowd, and it doesn't matter that this tournament doesn't count for the ranking.
Walking close to the legend is always a privilege for many. Mind you, the Californian pulled the buggy regularly and still leans on his putter when he walks onto the green. The television performance also pointed at Tiger at all times, who was somewhat erratic and made 77 hits (+5).
His drive was somewhat rusty, although he was not out of tune. In the middle and short game, where he should try to make a difference, that's where he was less successful. The putt did not hold his return. That yes, in 12 he put a chip that he made roar was the large audience.
Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods, is an American golfer. Considered among the best golfers of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, in his career won everything.
