At a time when Irish golf has never looked better, Boylesports is offering money back on the 2012 Open Championship if an Irish golfer wins the claret jug.
Making the short trip across the Irish Sea to Royal Lytham and St Annes will be last year’s Open winner Darren Clarke along with fellow Ulstermen and former US Open champions Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlory. From the Republic, dual Open champion Padraig Harrington will find himself playing just a few miles north of the venue of his second Open triumph which was at Royal Birkdale in 2008.
In all there will be six representatives from the Emerald Isle in the 156 strong field. The four major winners are joined by Michael Hoey who won the 2011 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship by two strokes from Rory McIlroy last October and qualified for his third Open appearance by finishing 25th in the 2011 Race to Dubai. Alan Dunbar was following in the footsteps of Hoey when becoming the third Northern Ireland golfer to win the British Amateur Championship and earned his place in the Open field after lifting the title at Troon last month.
Boylesports will refund up to £100 on win or win part of each way singles placed on the outright winner of the Open before the first Official tee time if an Irish player wins the tournament. In addition, Boylesports will pay an extra place on the event, offering ¼ odds a place 1,2,3,4,5,6.
