It sounds like a round to remember, on a magnificent links course that is Old Head Golf Links. Tiger teed it up with the late, great Payne Stewart, Mark O’Meara, David Duval and Stuart Appleby to play the latest gem in Ireland’s golfing crown.
“It had been a little foggy when Woods, the late, great Payne Stewart, Mark O’Meara, David Duval and Stuart Appleby set out to play this, the latest gem in Ireland’s golfing crown.
Well worth the wait” Tiger observed as the mist lifted and he got the breath taking view from the l5th tee.”

“This has to be one of the most spectacular sights I have seen in golf” Tiger added.
Mark O’Meara went on to state “This has to be one of the most spectacular locations I have ever seen for a golf course and the holes along by the sea are especially lovely, when the wind blows, this course will take on an entirely new character.”
The beauty of the place will make it a must for tourists from the U.S. but anyone who has a love of golf and scenic beauty should make a point of playing here, its as simple as that.”
