Just happened to come across it and saw Tiger smash his drive straight up the middle. However his amateur partners. First one promptly pulls it left. The second one playing off 14 gets out his three wood. “ playing for position” as the comment says. He does no more than nobs it off the tee for 80 yds. Suffice to say the crowd showed there appreciation 😂😂😂😂
Looks a nice relaxed tornament

I'm only an hour from limerick but unfortunately can't go due to other commitments

As part of their "goodie bag" every amateur taking part received a TaylorMade custom fitting on the range in Adare plus then supplied with the built clubs from the fitting!!!!

The word around here is that each team was €250,000 to enter. €500,000 for the tiger , Rory and JT slots

A tiny few "ordinary" amateurs who entered a draw at €100 per ticket for a place on a team

Tiger doesn't seem to have brought his game with him..
He's in a buggy and he still looks like he's struggling a bit with the walking..

Any mentions of the purse, that there isn't a cut, it isn't 72 holes, or the ranking points? 😉😉😉
It’s a pro am, over 2 days, there isn’t a cut, and there are no ranking points, because, like other recent events, it’s just an exhibition event aimed at raising money for the poor unfortunate folks that need it.

Louis putted up past the hole and Jordan stopped the ball from going further, picked it up and threw it back to him
I think he was putting for a 2 and they already had a 3
Obviously, in a Charity event, that means a DQ....
Seems he scooped up his own ball, forgetting he still had to hole out for the Pros event...

Green fee at Adare Manor Euro 395 non resident, Euro 350 resident.

When did prices suddenly shoot to these stratospheric levels?

They have to pay for the multi million euro refit the whole place has just had....
There was a few million spent just on tress for end of driving range, these were mature fully grown trees lifted in by cranes

The Ryder cup is being seen as JP McManus's legacy, no expense will be spared for it

Can anyone explain why Spieth had to get a DQ? Looking at the rules it is only a DQ if he was intentionally trying to save strokes or the action was unbecoming of a golfer. Surely in this case it was neither and so penalties could have been given. Or did he tee off at the following hole before the error was discovered?

Sounds pretty grim

For real team sporting events I’ll stick to Test cricket - and for watching golf I’ll stick to the real majors, i.e. the Open and the Amatuer Champ.

He didn't finish the hole before starting the next
