Follow in Kjeldsen’s Footsteps – Carr Golf Links Pro-Am2 min read

Posted on: 13th Jun 2015

The Carr Golf Links Pro-Am will return from the 19th – 22nd October taking PGA Professionals and their amateur teams to some of the greatest links golf courses in the world, including the venue of the 2015 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, Royal County Down GC.

Up to 20 teams will have the opportunity to compete at courses in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, including the site of Søren Kjeldsen’s victory in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Hosted by the Rory Foundation, Royal County Down.

Kjeldsen had begun the day two strokes ahead of the field but tentatively secured his place in a playoff after shooting a final round 76.

The 40 year old, who had not won since the 2009 Open de Andalucía de Golf, held his nerve when it counted up the 18th for a second time as he saw his birdie putt rattle around the cup before falling in.

Carr Golf Links Pro-Am Competitors will also play former Irish Open and Walker Cup venue, Portmarnock Golf Club, along with future Open Championship venue, Royal Portrush.
