Tiger for pre-Open warm up in Ireland? Don't bet the house

Writers on both sides of the pond are wondering if Tiger Woods should play in next week's Scottish Open to better prepare himself for his first injury free-major appearance for several years in The Open at Royal Liverpool. Could we see him in Ireland again? It's probably best not to get our hopes up.

Last year in the inaugural staging of this event, more than 250 golfers played in the Challenge which despite some equally “challenging” weather was a huge success. This year the organisers are hoping to attract double last year’s numbers for the event, which will take place from 7-10 May.

Remembering Eddie Hackett

Eddie Hackett at St Patrick’s Maheramagorgan course on the day he laid the last sod, two months before he died, on 31 October 2006. It was the last time he set foot on a golf course. Picture courtesy http://www.stpatricksgolflinks.comEddie Hackett is widely regarded as The “Father of Golf Course Design” in Ireland. Few, if any have had such an influence over the game of golf in Ireland and how we play it to- day. Already in his late fifties before designing his first 18 hole course, there is little doubt that his legacy lives with us today.
