Irish Club To Offer Free Golf If Rory McIlroy Wins The Masters
Rory McIlroy has yet to break the Top 10 in five Masters appearances, but golfers who frequent Ireland’s Westport Golf Club are hoping his sixth time will be the charm.
According to Brian Keogh of Irish Golf Desk, the County Mayo club is offering “free golf” to patrons if McIlroy can manage to win this years Masters.
The club — recently named Connacht’s Best Parkland Course for 2014 by the ‘Golfer’s Guide to Ireland’ — will offer up free greens fee vouchers to any golfer who pays through the club’s new website between and now and April 13, Masters Sunday.
McIlroy knows Westport well. He won the 2005 Irish Amateur there when he was 16-years-old.
The 24-year-old hasn’t fared as well at Augusta. His best finish came in 2011 when he held the 54-hole lead but imploded on the back nine and finished tied for 15th.
