McIlroy commits to the Irish Open
Thursday 01 December 2011
Rory McIlroy has confirmed he will play at next year's Irish Open. McIlroy's participation had been in doubt because of a clash of dates with the the AT&T National at Congressional, the scene of his US Open victory.
"I am happy to announce that I will definitely play the Irish Open next season," said McIlroy of the tournament that will be staged from 28 June to 1 July.
"For me, the Irish Open has always been, and will continue to be, one of the most important events on the global golf calendar. It's our national Open and it's obviously a title that I would love to win."
