The players of the Ladies European Tour and the LPGA Tour will play this week on the Galcorm Castle Golf Club and the Massereene Golf Club on the occasion of the ISPS Handa World Invitational, along with the players of the DP World Tour. This par 73 of 6546 yards located in Antrim in Northern Ireland, will offer a total endowment of 3 million euros, 1,5 million for ladies and 1,5 million for gentlemen. It is only the second edition of this event which was won last year by the Thai Pajaree Anannarukarn in the women's category and by the Englishman Daniel Gavins in the men's category.

This tournament is an innovative event since men and women from the best circuits in the world compete for victory on the same course, for the same prize pool for men and women.

Six French women will be at the start of this event in Ireland:

  • Anne-Lise Caudal
  • Pauline Roussin-Bouchard
  • Agathe Sauzon
  • Agathe Laisne
  • Celine Herbin
  • Emma Grechi

Céline Boutier after her top 10 at the AIG Women's Open, will not be present in Ireland. This great performance allowed her to reach her best career world ranking: she is now 15th player in the world.

Among the gentlemen, we will find five French people:

  • Mathieu Decottignies-Lafon
  • Victor Riu
  • Gregory Bourdy
  • Adrian Saddier
  • Joel Stalter
