Opinion – Bring the Open home

Screen shot 2016-05-26 at 10.03.17THIS picture of Rory McIlroy and JP Mc Manus at the Irish Open last weekend (by Tom Russell of anoisphotogrpahy) got me thinking.
With the renovation of Adare Golf Club at Adare Manor underway, the timing might just be right for the Irish Open to have a new, long term home.
With JP Mc Manus’ ability to run a  golf event alongside McIlroy’s profile and willingness to lend his name to Ireland’s spot on the European Tour, it makes perfect sense for the two men to make this exciting prospect happen.
With crowds down on last year, as well as the Irish Open struggling to find a spot on the ‘links’ swing, I am sure both McManus and McIlroy have the nous, the intelligence and of course, the willingness to do business which would be mutually beneficial.
