Hume off to Mexico for Eisenhower World Amateur Team Championship

Jack Hume, Naas Golf Club

Yet another major honour for golfer, Jack Hume as the GUI announced that Naas man is to be part of a three man Ireland team for the 2016 World Amateur Team Championships, which runs from September 21-24.

The Eisenhower Trophy awaits the leading team after four rounds of stroke play competition, with the two best cards to count each day over the Mayakoba El Camaleón and Iberostar Playa Paraiso courses.

Jack will be joined by Stuart Grehan (Tullamore/MU) and Paul McBride (The Island).

Coached by Naas Golf Professional, Gavin Lunny, currently ranked number five in the world, Naas star Jack Hume (22) is accustomed to the international stage having tasted victory with Great Britain & Ireland at the 2015 Walker Cup in Royal Lytham & St Anne’s. Most recently, he helped GB&I retain the St Andrews Trophy against the Continent of Europe, where Tullamore's Stuart Grehan also played a leading role.

A fifth place finish at the 2010 championship in Argentina represents Ireland’s best result at the Eisenhower Trophy.

In 2018 the GUI will host the Eisenhower Trophy at Carton House.
