We have strong Irish and US representation and it is great to expand this footprint into Europe,” said Marty Carr. “As we head to Northern Ireland to play the best links courses in the world, it is also very timely that Royal Portrush, where my father won the British Amateur, has once again been invited to host an Open Championship in the near future. We look forward to working with the PGAs of Europe for what promises to be a unique and unforgettable event.”
