TIGER WOODS HAS congratulated the Limerick hurlers following their dramatic All-Ireland final victory over Galway last Sunday, which ended a 45-year wait for the Liam MacCarthy Cup.

Woods confirmed this week that he would be returning to Ireland for the 2020 JP McManus Pro-Am and was quick to offer his appreciation for the achievements of John Kiely’s men.

“JP is one of my dearest friends and it’s cool his Limerick team finally won the title as I know how passionate he is about his hurling as well as his love of horse-racing and, of course, golf,” Woods said.

“I remember one year I was over for his Pro-Am and JP took me to a hurling match. I thought it was pretty neat but not a sport I would want try,” he laughed.

“I try to keep in contact with him as much as our time allows but that’s great news for JP and Limerick and I’m really pleased for him as JP just does so much for sport in Ireland.

“I’m not sure when we’ll catch-up next but I do know I am looking forward to going back to Ireland in 2020 for his Pro-Am at Adare Manor as it’s been a long time since we played the Pro-Am.

“It’s right before The Open and I’ve always supported the event.

“I see we’re heading to JP’s Adare Manor — I knew guys like Rory (McIlroy) and Paddy (Padraig Harrington) were over there just after the Masters for a grand re-opening, so it all sounds pretty exciting.

“But as I said, it was a pretty cool result last weekend for JP and Limerick and my congrats to them.”
