This time, the upcoming JP McManus Pro-Am boasts an elaborate field, the perfect combination of amateurs and professionals.

Tiger Woods and Scottie Scheffler are amongst popular stars at JP McManus Pro-Am

Looking at the current field, the McManus Pro-Am might as well rival a major. Reports mention that if it was an OWGR sanctioned event, the winner could win 56 points. That is more than a majority of other PGA Tour events scheduled in the year.

More about the Pro-Am

The Pro-Am will be held in July and it focuses on charities working in Mid-Western Ireland. Like most events, the focus is to raise money and try to give back in an entertaining way. “It’s incredible to see how many players from across the world are coming to play in the Pro-Am,” said host JP McManus, thanking everyone involved.
