Photograph in Rory's Club

January 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This photograph has been included in a recent new book on Rory McIlroy called Rory's Club  - see page 38 of the book.

I had just arrived at Royal Portrush and positioned myself at the 18th green as Rory approached the green.

He sank his put, broke the course record and was on his way to shake hands with his partner. I did not realise at the time that he had such a low score and that he had broken the course record as I took this photograph.
