The first time I actually stood and watched Rory McIlroy on the range was at the 2010 HSBC Tournament in Abu Dhabi. I had never seen anyone swing with such ease and grace. I can tell you things about painting but not golf, however it was obvious to me that this young guy was going to be one of the 'Greats'. Added to that he had longish hair and came from my home town, 'Belfast'. What more do you need... Since then I have been painting portrait after portrait for clients, such is his fame. He is the perfect golf swing portrait model. What a round of golf this weekend ..... More of that and more portraits to come. Well done Rory McIlroy. Northern Ireland is proud of you.
