A chance to play alongside new US Open champion Rory McIlroy is being offered to fans buying tickets for next month's Irish Open in Killarney.

Names will be entered into a competition offering a place in the 22-year-old's team for the pre-tournament pro-am - plus a two-night stay in a four-star hotel.

"Hopefully people will like the idea of taking me on. I might even give them a couple of shots," McIlroy said.

"The Irish Open is very high on the list of tournaments that I would like to win in my career one day.

"I think every golfer has a special place in his or her heart for their national Open and I am no different.

"To win in front of a home crowd is something we don't get the chance to do that often, so I'd love to win the title."
