JP McManus Pro-Am postponed until 2022

Jan 19, 2021 | ,

The JP McManus Pro-Am, a star-studded charity event held in Ireland that was set to feature Tiger Woods, World No. 1 Dustin Johnson and native son Rory McIlroy, has been postponed until 2022 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“We are at all times prioritizing public health and are aware that question marks remain about events taking place for much of this year,” Colm Hannon, chairman of the pro-am committee, said in a statement.

“Spectators make the Pro-Am very special and we feel by moving it to 2022, and making the decision early, gives us the best chance of delivering a world-class tournament in front of a full house next year. We would like to sincerely thank our players, volunteers, ticket cap holders and the European Tour for their continued patience and full support of the event.”

The postponement marks the second time the event has been rescheduled within a year. After last summer’s cancellation due to COVID-19, the tournament had been scheduled for July 5-6 at Adare Manor resort in County Limerick, immediately following the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, which is scheduled for July 1-4 at Mount Juliet Estate, Thomastown, County Kilkenny. The new dates are July 4-5, 2022.

Tournament organizers sold approximately 40,000 tickets to attend the event, which has been held five times and was previously staged in 2010. According to the Irish Times, event organizers felt “the smooth and safe running of the event would be better facilitated in 2022.”
