Xander Schauffele leads JP McManus Pro-Am
Xander Schauffele has topped the leaderboard at the JP McManus Pro-Am in Ireland, where he carded an eight-under-par 64 to take the lead. He’s one shot clear of his compatriot Sam Burns, who finished second with a seven-under-par 65. Schauffele will play the Open Championship in St Andrews, Scotland, later this year, a tournament that raises money for charities.
Xander Schauffele is the first-round leader at the JP McManus Pro-Am, which began Monday. Other notable players who played include Shane Lowry, Seamus Power, and Rory McIlroy. Lowry’s round featured a faux-pas when he hit the ball into the crowd on the fifth hole. Tiger Woods was the first to tee off, and despite having a tough day, he managed to make back-to-back birdies and a bogey on the 12th hole.
Eight Americans are in the top ten. Xander Schauffele is in fine form after his recent win at the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour. He is two shots ahead of the defending champion, Raf Cabrera-Bello, and eight others are within the top-ten.
Tiger Woods finishes second
Tiger Woods will make his first appearance since withdrawing from the PGA Championship, which will be the last official tournament before the Open Championship at St. Andrews. The American is playing alongside amateurs, and is raising money for charity. His round, which was a two-over-par 74, showed signs of improvement over his opening-day 77. He bogeyed the closing-nine par-5 holes, but nonetheless, managed to shoot a 74.
Tiger Woods is playing in the JP McManus Pro-Am in Limerick, Ireland. It is the first public event he has played since withdrawing from the PGA Championship in May. At the event, Woods was playing alongside five other golfers in stroke play and scramble format. In the scramble format, he was paired with three amateur partners.
The JP McManus Pro-Am is a stroke-play event that includes some of the world’s top players. Each player plays with three amateur partners, and the final leader is determined by a final-round score. Tiger Woods has finished second in this tournament twice.
Other notable finishes
The JP McManus Pro-Am is a two-day Irish tournament that hasn’t been played since 2010. It is one of the rarest big-time events held in Ireland. In 2010, there were many major winners and notable finishes, but the players were in different stages of their careers. Rory McIlroy was fresh off his first PGA Tour victory, while Padraig Harrington was coming off three majors in a row. Moreover, Tiger Woods was under scrutiny after his personal life became tabloid fodder.
The tournament’s five previous stagings have raised $145 million for charity. The tournament features the best amateur and professional golfers. As of 2018, nine of the world’s top-10 players will compete. It will also feature 30 of the top-100 players. The tournament pairs these players with three amateur partners.
In addition to Schauffele, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods also played in the tournament. The latter has three Open titles under his belt. The former won in 2000 at St Andrews, while the latter has won the event twice.
Jordan Spieth disqualified
Jordan Spieth has been disqualified from a golf tournament after scooping up a golf ball too soon. The incident occurred at the 14th hole of the 2022 JP McManus Pro-Am in Ireland. The DP World Tour noted the DQ on their official leaderboard. Spieth, who had birdied the previous hole, had been on 3-over par. The incident did not affect Spieth’s team score, but it did disqualify him from the individual portion of the tournament.
The tournament is a two-day, 36-hole charity event that raised $145 million in previous stagings. Spieth is one of several stars in the field. Others include Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Graeme McDowell.
