As expected, there weren’t many highlights from Tiger Woods’ return to competition at the JP McManus Pro-AM after a nearly two-month break after the Agusta Masters. But golfing legend did give the crowd an opportunity to produce a magical eagle roar. Woods chipped in for eagle at the par-5 12th hole at Adare Manor after coming up just short of the green in two shots. He was 5 over with just one birdie, at No. 10, before the eagle.

At the event, Tiger Woods talked about playing at the JP McManus Pro-AM. He said, “It’s one of the few dates that we have to get together like this. We don’t get a chance to see some of our brethren over here on the European Tour. They do come over to play in the majors but this is a totally relaxed atmosphere. It’s all about charity, having fun, and doing something for the local communities.”
He then opened up about his relationship with McManus. He said, “JP is one of my dearest friends. I remember one year I was over for his Pro-Am and JP took me to a hurling match. I thought it was pretty neat but not a sport I would want to try (smiling).”
“I try to keep in contact with him as much as our time allows but that’s great news for JP and Limerick and I’m really pleased for him as JP just does so much for the sport in Ireland,” he added.
