Rickie Fowler to join Rory at Irish Open

Rickie Fowler, one of golf’s most exciting talents, will take a walk down memory lane with one of his closest golfing friends when he joins World Number One Rory McIlroy at Royal County Down Golf Club for the 2015 Irish Open Hosted by The Rory Foundation.

The tournament is returning to McIlroy’s native Northern Ireland for the second time in four years following Royal Portrush in 2012, with Royal County Down Golf Club hosting the prestigious event for the first time in 76 years.

McIlroy, the reigning Open and US PGA Champion, announced Fowler’s participation in the 2015 Irish Open, which takes place from May 28-31, on the eve of The European Tour’s season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, where he will be crowned as winner of The Race to Dubai for a second time in three years.
