More About the Irish Open 2013 - Legendary Players on Challenging Courses
The history of the tournament goes all the way back to 1927, when Scotsman George Duncan won the inaugural contest. Aside from taking a five-year break during World War II, the competition continued until 1950, when financial problems resulted in its cancellation.However, a rise in popularity of the sport resulted in its return in 1975 and since then it's gone from strength to strength, growing its attendance numbers and attracting the world's top players. With the contest moving around the Emerald Isle's top courses, each year's tournament offers a fresh challenge, meaning spectators never quite know what's about to unfold.
Fittingly, an Irishman holds the record for the most wins - '70s star Christy O'Connor Snr - while Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard Langer, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballestros have all tasted victory in the tournament down the years. Meanwhile, more recent years have seen the likes of Padraig Harrington and Jamie Donaldson come out on top. With Carton House in Kildare selected to host the 2013 event, commentators are expecting the biggest, best and most competitive instalment in this annual battle for supremacy yet.Witness all the action first-hand - buy Irish Open 2013 tickets on StubHub UK today.
