Golf Australia Express : GA Express 294
Bannon – who he has worked with since he was eight years old – to attempt to iron out any kinks. McIlroy has also enjoyed previous success at Ballyliffin, albeit on The Old Links, where he set the course record alongside Sir Nick Faldo in 2006. The 17-year-old prodigy shot 67 to open the newly-renovated course and is looking forward to returning to the club. “I’ve enjoyed my time up in Ballyliffin, I played quite a lot there as an amateur,” he said. “It’s always nice to go back and hopefully I can give them something to cheer about this week.” But there’s no doubt the crowd-favourite will have his work cut out. Not only will he need to overcome his poor tournament record, he will also be facing the likes of Jon Rahm, who broke numerous tournament records with his dominant six-stroke victory last year. Should McIlroy find form on this wind-stricken links course, he will certainly justify why the bookies have listed him as one of the favourites to lift the Claret Jug at Carnoustie later this month. It’s always nice to go back and hopefully I can give them something to cheer about this week. COVER STORY
