PLAYER PROFILE

Rory McIlroy No.1 in the world, double major winner... and still only 23!

STAR PERFORMER by Karl Matchett

McIlroy took up golfing exceptionally early; by the age of two he had a club in his hand and was in love with the game. He credits his father in particular for nurturing and encouraging his love of the sport, which he excelled in at junior level.

the No.1 golfer on the entire planet at this point, Rory McIlroy has won two majors, raked in $5 million in prize money this year alone, sits near the top of the money list for the PGA tour and has achieved major fame in the game, even inspiring others to take up the sport - all by the age of just 23.

4

wins followed at the 2002 Ulster Boys championship when aged 13 and at 16 he became the youngest ever player to triumph in the Irish Amateur closed championship. Just two years after focussing fully on amateur golf McIlroy turned professional, taking up his European Tour card in 2007 having won five amateur titles. A 19-under par score secured his first professional win at the Dubai Desert classic, earning him a handsome â‚Ź323,000 for his efforts. McIlroy made his first Majors appearance in 2009 when he ended T20 at The Masters and later that year secured his first ever top-10 in a Major, placing T10 at the Us open. He was fast becoming one of the most recognisable and talented young golfers around and he inevitably joined the PGA Tour at the end of that season, ranking 9th in the world at the time.

theGOLFeRSMAG.cOM OCT - DEC 2012

golfmag oct12.indd 4

27/09/2012 12:55


A first Tour victory was not long in coming as McIlroy won the wells fargo championship, picking up over $1.1million in prize money in the process. Big success came the following year when Rory McIlroy, aged just 21, won the Us open. His 16-under score was a new Us open record, making him the youngest winner since 1923. clearly, the win gave Rory the taste for big victories. 2012 started well as he recorded top-3 finishes in his first three tournaments, including his third win on the PGA Tour at the Honda classic. Questions were asked of his form and focus through the middle of the year as he failed to make the cut in three out of four tournaments but McIlroy answered them in style with a stunning victory at the PGA championship in August, his second Major in the space of just one year and two months.

what Rory could go on to achieve is remarkable; he has a long way to go to be ranked as one of the alltime greats of course, but even a single further victory at a Major would put him in esteemed company as one of less than 30 men to have ever won three. The Ryder cup is just around the corner and McIlroy will be one of the golfers who holds the most interest amongst spectators, having been victorious in both Junior (2004) and full versions (2010) of the event. Despite having achieved so much already, there is plenty more to come from Rory McIlroy. sources: rorymcilroy.com, PGA Tour, Golf club Management,EsPN, yahoo sports.

only five short years since turning professional and McIlroy has already begun to conquer the sport he loves. He has the entire golfing world at his feet, the adulation of fans and a high-profile celebrity relationship - not to mention over $10 million in PGA Tour prize money accumulated along the way.

PRO TIPS

your swing : feel & focus THE SIMPLE WAY...

BY ADRIAN RUDGE Advanced PGA Golf Pro Based at Vistabella and Greenlands T: 670 291 788

One of the biggest questions a golf coach is asked is, “How should I move my body when I am making a golf swing?” One of the main reasons for this is that much has been written over the years about so many different theories regarding the perfect swing. To mention a few: turn your body, hinge your wrists, transfer your weight etc. etc.

THE FIX

Once you start thinking about all these things whilst trying to make a golf swing, which by the way only takes two seconds to make, you are heading for disaster. I am sure we have all been in this situation thinking about all of these things on the course, but let’s be honest this really is information overload. The first thought has to be we need a consistent swing and in order to achieve that we must have a consistent thought process and focus. With too many thoughts we can’t achieve this.

As I have written in previous articles we really must start to think about things in a much easier and simpler way... First of all let’s start to think about how our onboard computer works when we are making the golf swing. Our onboard computer is the mind. Our mind is split in to two sections, the conscious and subconscious. Don’t worry i’m not going to give you a psychology lesson, well not yet anyway! There are, however, certain things about how our mind works that we need to understand. The subconscious is the most powerful part of our mind. Basically, this keeps us alive. It takes care of all of the workings in our body without us knowing or thinking about. This is the part of the mind that we really need to get in touch with if we really want to progress at golf. All too often when we play golf and when we make the golf swing we are constantly trying to put our bodies in to a position or focusing on a certain part of the body to produce the swing. In my mind this cannot work effectively all of the time. I am going to show and explain to you a simple exercise that can get the body working in a way that you won’t have to think about physical movements. Your focus will be only on the clubhead. First of all what I would like you to do is to take a club, and it really doesn’t matter which one and hold it at about waist height as illustrated in the picture (pic 1). From this position, I would like you to start making a movement with the following thought in your mind. If I wanted to make a simple backswing in order to return the club to its starting point which be the easiest way for me to move the club? Now I know this may sound a little too simple but what I would like you to do is to give it a try. As you are doing this I would like you to be aware of how the club is moving in your swing. Do you notice any change in height as the club is swinging? What do you feel is the relationship between the way the club is moving and your body?

I can imagine that you will feel very little change in the height of the movement of the club during the backswing and equally as you return the club to the starting point. In your mind how do you see and feel the club moving? I believe we could imagine that the club is swinging in a semi circular motion. So how do we now complete the swing? Imagine for me now that the club isn’t going to return to that point and stop, it is going to swing through that point and continue naturally forwards. What do you notice now about the swing? How does the club continue? Does the height that the club is swinging at change? I believe that if you allow the club to swing through naturally it will remain on a constant arc. So as we make the swing all as one movement effectively we are no longer making a semi circular motion we are making a complete circle with the club (pics 2 & 3). After we have made some swings from the waist height position it’s time to take our normal golfing setup and allow ourselves to make the same motion focusing only on the clubhead making a nice big circle around our body (pics 4 & 5). You will most definitely notice some different physical feelings. I am sure you will start to feel how freely your body is turning. You will also start to feel how freely your hands are moving and how your body weight is transferring. All of these things start to happen by focusing your conscious mind only on the clubhead and not thinking how your body has to move, your subconscious is taking care of that for you. It is amazing that all of these things can start to happen purely because of your focus on the clubhead. Next time you are on the range give it a try. Then take it to the course you will start to realise how easily you will start to make the golf swing that you have wanted to make without all of those thoughts cluttering your mind. It really does work.

Dwyers & Co IN TUNE FOR 2013 "I think we realised early on we needed to differentiate ourselves from the pack with Dwyers & Co. Not just with product, which is key, but also with our branding and promotion. Dwyers & Co is a niche brand, trousers, shorts and belts, so we can afford to take risks." Says Marketing Director Peter Dwyer. "Also, with our heritage in the brand and clothing, Dwyers & Co is very close to our hearts, so it makes it a bit special". Peter and his brother Alan are the sixth generation of Dwyers involved in the clothing industry in Cork City on the southern coast of Ireland. “Although we are extremely proud of our past and traditions, it doesn't mean we can rest on our laurels. In that respect Dwyers & Co is a forward moving brand with a rich heritage. We pride ourselves that we use stretch in every trouser we make”, says Peter, ‘We believe it makes our customers more comfortable on the course. All of our fabrics are easy care and non iron because at the end of the day it is all about customer experience’. In addition Dwyers & Co have added some slim fit trousers for Spring and one colour is called 'Ugly'. Peter explains: " I'm looking at things differently and having some fun with Dwyers & Co. The Ugly colour is a mix of 2 contrasting checks and already has been really well received by some, but not all. I don't believe the trouser is ugly but I know a few people who do and that's ok! We're here to stretch the boundaries a little and this is just the start. I'm intent on enjoying the ride and hopefully making it fun for our customers too." Sounds like he's having fun already.

For Spring 2013 Dwyers and Co have adopted a unique selling point in store. With every Dwyers & Co fashion trouser and short for spring they are giving away a free music download. "I've always been a massive music fan and we've teamed up with 7 Digital to offer our customers a chance to download their favourite song of all time. 7 Digital works across all platforms, iphone, android etc so it makes sense to use these guys. They have 18 million songs available to choose from - so I'm sure we can cater for every taste!” "We're going to do some nice in store POS for the free music www.dwyersandco.com download. Each product will have a unique code and the customer will enter this code to download his favourite song. Works really simple and will be a nice way to help increase sell through we believe."

GREEN LAMB SPRING 2013 sophisticationquality performance Green Lamb is renowned throughout Europe as a leading ladies golf fashion brand. And in the last couple of years, that reputation has expanded through the USA. Sophistication is a key element of the Spring 2013 collection. Mixing sophistication with performance & quality and you get where Green Lamb sees its unique position in the market. Easy care fabrics with quick dry and UV properties are the main stay for shirt fabrics with performance checks and plains, with added spandex, for ends. “The added sophistication comes in the detail in every product- flashes of gold, luxury fabrics give soft hand feel, a splash of check trim. Nice touches that inspire our designers" says Sales Director Charles Casson. There is more colour available for 2013 also- 5 colour stories compared to 3 in 2012. "We've reduced the size of the collections to get more colour into stores. That was the general feedback from our customer base and I think it works well" says Casson. Green Lamb has also added an interesting new collection for Spring 2013- a compact Classic Collection for accounts that don't specialise in ladies fashion. "We get feedback all the time of shops that are nervous to stock ladies fashion and in an effort to assist these potential accounts we have introduced a compact ladies collection of 4 shirts, 3 cottons vests and some socks/visors. All co-ordinated in a simple package". Sounds just what the industry needs in these uncertain times. Nice to see a bit of innovation from one of the market leaders in ladies fashion.

The brand image is getting a makeover for Spring 2013. ‘We want to get back to our core values: sophistication, quality and performance." These three words keep coming up when talking to Peter Dwyer, Marketing Director for Green Lamb. Dwyer is going back his roots in marketing/design and relishing the new role. "Hopefully our new images will give people an indication of the direction we're taking the brand. A little sexier, a lot more sophisticated with more impact in every shot." . Looking at these images from the Spring 2013 photoshoot, it's easy to see what he means.

LA TERCIA

HACIENDA DEL ALAMO

A newcomer to Murcia, it is a 9 hole course which is planned to be extended to 18 holes at some time in the future. This golf course was designed by Jose Gancedo who has developed a course around the lakes and ramblas with some difficult approach shots into small undulating greens. The Par 5 5th hole is a great example of this where what off the tee looks like a birdie opportunity can turn into a bogey even if you hit the green in regulation. The par 5 3rd hole is stroke index 3 and probably the hardest hole on the course at 535m and usually into a stiff wind.

The course was designed by Dave Thomas to test golfers of all abilities. from the back tees the par 72 course measures 6,724 metres and it is one of the longest courses in spain. It meanders through the almond and olive orchards enhanced with several new lakes and cascades. Many of the long par 4 holes are well protected by steep bunkers at the front and sides of the green so you have to make the difficult choice of “go for it” or “lay up” and rely on your chipping game. The course boasts a modern golf academy and driving range which has 6 full golf holes and two putting greens.

The course is 6,293 metres long off the white tees and 6,151 metres off the yellow tees and it is a par 72. The fairways are very wide allowing you to take out the driver without too much fear of missing them. A few of the fairways are on slopes so the second shots can be tricky. The greens are a good size and several of them are elevated and protected by bunkers. The course has its own 5* hotel and sports facilities.

A challenging 18 hole course with a second 9 hole course. The 18 hole course was designed by Manual ferry Ruiz and opened in 2000, so it is now a quite mature.

one of the newest courses in the area, it was designed by Blake stirling and Marco Martín and uses the hills and valleys to create a superb challenge of golf.

The fairways are wide but are tree lined which penalises any wayward drives into the greens. The greens are quite big so it is important to take note of the pin positions, a pin located at the back of the green can add two clubs to your selection otherwise you will come up short and be left with a 40ft put.

The course has a small stream running through it connecting the five lakes which, along with the deep gorges, make choosing the right club a must if you’re to score well.

The vegetation is a feature of the course as well as two lakes that complicate matters on a few holes.

The golf course has its own spacious and comfortable club House, shop, changing rooms and bag storage room – without forgetting the magnificent restaurant with its large terrace from where 12 of the 18 holes can be seen.

ALENDA GOLF

ALICANTE GOLF

Alenda Golf club is situated at the foot of the sierra de las Aguilas Mountains near Alicante on the costa Blanca. Designed by Roland favrat and opened in 1999 this Par 72 course is set over gently rolling terrain with tree lined fairways. The first nine holes offer wide fairways and are quite short, but the second nine holes are far more challenging. The greens are quite undulating and can offer some tricky pin positions so expect the odd three putt. The course is quite compact with short distances between greens and tees.

located in the Bonalba mountains overlooking the Mediterranean sea and the Playa de san Juan. The course was designed by Ramon Espinosa and opened in 1993, it is a par 72 and 6096m off the yellow tees. It has wide fairways lined with a variety of trees like palms and pines. Ramon has included some very strategically placed lakes and bunkers that will challenge many shots into the greens. The greens themselves are quite large and undulated so make sure the approach shots get as close to the pins as possible to avoid a three put.

RYDER CUP 2012

by Karl Matchett

GAME ON! One of the most eagerlyanticipated sporting events on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, golf’s Ryder Cup, begins September 25th in Medinah Country Club, Illinois.

The biennial event sees America pitch its collective golfing talent against that of Europe, with a match play format of eight foursomes (alternating strokes between players on each team), eight fourballs (each player with their own ball) and 12 singles. Much of the appeal of the Ryder cup is of course that one team must play to win; an overall draw sees the reigning champions of the previous cup retain their trophy, only an outright victory is enough to wrench it from them. That is the task which faces America this year, after Europe were the victors by one point at celtic Manor Resort, wales. Unlike in the Majors - or indeed any other PGA or European Tour tournament - there is no prize money on offer for the players in the Ryder cup; they compete simply to win and for the prestige involved in being selected. Each team is comprised of 12 players, with variable

factors involved in selecting them for each. for Europe, the five leading players on the European Tour events gain automatic entry, followed by the leading five players (not already qualified) on the Ryder cup world Points list.

THERE IS NO PRIZE MONEY ON OFFER FOR THE PLAYERS. THEY COMPETE SIMPLY TO WIN, AND FOR THE PRESTIGE. finally, the captain of the team will make two picks. Qualification for the United states team is rather more straightforward, with the top eight players on the Ryder cup Points list guaranteed a spot, and the remaining four places chosen by the team captain. The format of the tournament has, of course, changed plenty over the years and the methods of picking players are just one such example. Up to 1977 there was no true

“European” team; it was merely players from Great Britain and Ireland who competed against America. from ’79 and thereafter, European players joined the ranks and the cup became far more competitive. from America having won 17 of the last 18 prior to 1979, they have since that date won seven of 16, with Europe claiming the Ryder cup on the other nine occasions. 2010’s celtic Manor triumph for Europe, by 14½ - 13½, was the first single-point victory in the Ryder cup since 1999, when America triumphed in Massachusetts. Indeed it is perhaps worth recognising that only once since the mid 90’s has a team won the cup outside of their own territory - the 2004 Ryder cup won by Europe in Michigan. That shows the size of the task facing the current holders to retain their trophy as they travel to Illinois in late september.

2012 ToURNAMENT AMERICA The eight guaranteed spots for the American team courtesy of their Ryder cup points are now known, following the culmination of the Us PGA championship at Kiawah Island. Tiger woods finished top of the pile and will make his 7th appearance at the Ryder cup, while Masters winner Bubba watson took second place. Three debutants for the Ryder cup were next in line with Jason Duffner, Keegan Bradley and webb simpson making up the top five. Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar will also feature, while Phil Mickelson will make a record-breaking 9th appearance for the Us. captain Davis love III later made his four picks to make up the remainder of the team with both Rickie fowler and Hunter Mahan missing out. Jim furyk, Dustin Johnson, Brandt snedeker and steve stricker were the four chosen.

EUROPE All 12 members of the European team have been finalised, with Martin Kaymer securing the final automatic place. Rory McIlroy unsurprisingly topped the points pile while fellow Brits Justin Rose, Graeme McDowell and Paul lawrie are all also in. francesco Molinari came in at fifth place on the European Tour events list. following those five, the Ryder cup world Points list yielded English duo luke Donald and lee westwood, spaniard sergio Garcia, Peter Hanson from sweden and finally the aforementioned German Kaymer. captain Jose Maria olazabal then named Englishman Ian Poulter, famed for his match play in the game, and Nicolas colsaerts of Belgium as his wildcards. colsaerts, the only debutant in the European team, is the first Belgian to play in the Ryder cup.
