European Tour Chief Executive George O’Grady presented Royal Portrush Golf Club Captain John Moss with an engraved Waterford Crystal vase to thank the club for their superb hospitality in hosting this week’s Irish Open.

The presentation took place in the Royal Portrush clubhouse at a gathering for staff and officials on the eve of the final day’s play.

The 2012 Irish Open – the first staging of the championship in Northern Ireland since 1953 – has been a huge success for everyone involved with over 100,000 spectators having come through the gates in the five days from Tuesday to Saturday. Another bumper crowd in the region of 30,000 is expected for the final day’s play.
