McIlroy Engages Fans: Holds Trick Shot Contest

The Rory Foundation, the charity founded by world No. 2 Rory McIlroy has conceived a unique opportunity: a trick shot contest.

  • The Judge: Rory himself will watch all submissions and select a winner.
  • The Prize: The winning shot will be get to golf in a professional event: the pro-am of the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open, held at Portstewart in Northern Ireland (Rory’s home country) on July 5th.
