wholesale golf clubs and rory mcilroy


His grandfather, Jimmy, worked all his life repairing cranes in the Belfast docks where the Titanic was built, picking up golf in his 30s at the Holywood Golf Club in the lush hills above his home, overlooking Belfast Lough. He transmitted the game to Rory's father, Gerry, and uncles, Colm and Brian. Rory's cousin, Fergus, 12, now wants to follow in his footsteps, too. The club bent its rules to let Rory in as a member at age 7, after a mandatory induction interview where "he assured us that he wouldn't be a nuisance to anybody and that he knew the rules," says Eddie Harper, who organized the juniors. "We knew he was so good that it was stupid not to get him involved," he says. Even before Rory could use TaylorMade R11 Driver, Gerry was bringing him to the club, adds Paul Gray, the general manager. "Rory would be lying on his buggy just watching his dad hitting golf balls for the first 10 months of his life," he says. "As he got older, and could get out of the buggy, he was crawling around on the tee. ... Then, of course, Gerry had plastic clubs out there and that kept him occupied." Holywood's 5,000-yard short course suits juniors because "they can reach the greens in two shots," its hills force players to adapt to "all sorts of different lies: ball above your feet, below your feet, uphill lies, downhill lies," and its small greens mean "they develop quite good short games, because they miss a lot of greens, obviously," Gray says. Rory "was here pretty much every day," he adds. By age 7 or 8, "he was a R11 Driver." The brick and glass clubhouse is functional, not snobby, with somewhat threadbare carpets, a bar that serves a smooth pint of Guinness and a welcoming attitude to juniors, although Rory sometimes provoked frowns by hitting plastic balls inside, off the walls. But there was never any hint that McIlroy was railroaded into golf by TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons . Instead, say those who know him, his ambitions were all his own. As a youngster, he called himself "Rory 'Nick Faldo' McIlroy" and would saunter into the club's pro shop to practice his autograph on scorecards, writing "The Open Championship" at the top, Gray says. "Even at that age, he was painting really big pictures for himself," he says. "I have no doubt in my mind that he could see every shot when he was filling that scorecard in, visualizing himself being there someday." When he was naughty, Rory's parents sometimes took away his clubs. And, Bannon says, Rory was even known to have slept with Burner 2.0 Irons in his hand, his fingers clasped in a grip the coach wanted him to learn. But McIlroy's journey to the pinnacle of golf — he heads to the U.S. Open ranked No. 6 in the world was also a team effort.
