Irish Open returns to Druids Glen next year

Druids Glen, Dublin - The Irish Open will return to the Druids Glen course in County Wicklow for a fourth successive staging next year, organisers said on Friday.

"We are very happy with the way Druids Glen has matured and the way it gets the best out of golfers," said Marien Kakebeeke, managing director of the event's sponsors. "But it is not a signal that we have found a permanent base."

Five-times European number one Colin Montgomerie won the first two Irish Opens at Druids Glen and leads this year's tournament after an opening six-under-par 65.
