Sprint race for Bridgestone Order of Merit

The Bridgestone Order of Merit returned in August with a shortened sprint race over just four events.

This was made up of The Mullingar Scratch Trophy (August 15-16), the Munster Stroke Play (Cork, September 5-6), and this weekend’s Connacht Stroke Play (Portumna, September 19-20).

The forthcoming AIG Irish Close Championship at Rosapenna from October 9-11 makes up the series this season.

Colm Conyngham, marketing and public relations manager with Bridgestone Ireland said: “In these challenging times we are very pleased that the Bridgestone Order of Merit is proceeding and we are very happy to give our ongoing support. We hope it will continue to highlight the incredible emerging golf talent in Ireland and be of benefit to them at the early part of their careers.”

Alan Kelly, communications manager with the Golfing Union of Ireland added: “We are thrilled to have the support of Bridgestone for the Order of Merit series again this season. Having a sponsor like Bridgestone helps us to enhance the profile of our events and I know from talking to the players that they very much appreciate their involvement and support.”
