Must read

The Volvo China Open returns to the DP World Tour schedule after five years away and it is sixteen years since Damien McGrane struck gold in Beijing during an Olympic year.

McGrane will be fondly remembered as one of Ireland’s most successful European Tour players of the last 30-years where he was a model of consistency during his time as a touring professional.

The highlight of his twelve years on Tour was undoubtedly winning the 2008 Volvo China Open while he also rubbed shoulders with Tiger Woods in his pomp.
