"I have fond memories of playing in the Walker Cup and rate my three appearances very highly on my list of personal achievements," said the three-time major winner, invited to meet the squad during a training session at Portmarnock.

"I learned a great deal during that time and I gained considerable experience, which has helped me throughout my professional career."

Captain Nigel Edwards commented: "It was a privilege to have Padraig with us.

"I know that the players have taken a lot from his visit and I'm sure they will be inspired to go out there and prove that they deserve a place in the team."
