Wednesday (5th July) saw the Pro-Am’s, the prelude to the main tournament when began on Thursday morning. The Pro-Am’s is a chance for armature golfers to play with the pro and maybe pick up a few tips to improve their game.
The Pro-Am’s had vast array of armatures from all walks of lives, corporate, business or just an avid fan. It also included celebrities from the world of sport, TV & radio and even the odd film start including ‘Mr Grey’ himself, NI actor Jamie Dornan.
Despite their best efforts none of the NI professional golfers teams came in the top three of the Pro-Am’s, instead the team of David Howell(ENG) finished 1st with -33 followed by Stephen Gallagher(SCO) in 2nd with -31 and in 3rd with Tyrrell Hatton(ENG) team on -29.
hopefully the main tournament will see the NI golfers take higher position and walk away with this years Dubai Duty Free irish Open title
