Irish Open to move North

The Dubai Duty Free Irish Open looks set to  move from Mt Juliet to Galgorm Manor in Northern Ireland the week after the US Open from September 24-27.mtjulietgolf

Originally scheduled for Mount Juliet from May 28-31, the event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic in March and now appears likely to be played at Galgorm Castle Spa & Golf Resort near Ballymena.
While efforts were made to take the event to Co Kilkenny and a move to the Old Head of Kinsale was briefly considered, the Government's Covid-19 restrictions have forced the European Tour to look North.
With as many as 40 European Tour stars set to play in the US Open at Winged Foot from September 17-20, the requirement by the Government that all visitors from the US restrict their movements for 14 days would have decimated the field.
By heading to Northern Ireland, players such as Shane Lowry and Graeme McDowell would be able to travel directly to a UK airport and tee it up in one of the European Tour's flagship events.
