Murphy is teeing off in today’s Pro-Am at Ballyliffin Golf Club, playing alongside Pablo Larrazabal, Kieran Donaghy and Stephen Ferris.
Murphy was named an honorary life member at Ballyliffin GC in the lead-up to the Irish Open and took part in a unique GAA Target Challenge today.
Donegal skipper Murphy, Kerry star Donaghy and Irish golfers Shane Lowry – a former Irish Open winner – and Paul Dunne took on the challenge, first attempting to hit a gong with golf balls before the foursome attempted 50-yard frees.
Murphy says the event will showcase Donegal like never before.
“There is no place like it on earth,” Murphy said.
“It has the scenery the golf course and it has the people.”
