McIlroy forced to withdraw from the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship

Rory McIlroy has been forced to withdraw from the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship after tests revealed he has sustained a rib injury.

The Northern Irishman underwent extensive clinical examinations on Monday after picking up the injury in South Africa last week. McIlroy will now commence rehabilitation and will return to golf when he is fully recovered from the stress fracture.


Highly-rated Brett Coletta joins professional ranks at SMBC Singapore Open

Amateur star Brett Coletta of Australia will make his much anticipated professional debut at this week’s SMBC Singapore Open, organisers announced today.

Coletta, who shook up Australian golf last year by winning the Queensland Open and coming second in the NSW Open, has been handed an invitation to the prestigious tournament which is co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and Japan Golf Tour Organisation. He joins a fine field of amateurs including Singapore’s number one ranked amateur Gregory Foo, Joshua Ho, ranked second, and Lucius Toh - winner of last year’s National Amateur Championship. 


Storm takes down McIlroy in dramatic play-off at BMW SA Open

Graeme Storm beat Rory McIlroy in a play-off to win the BMW SA Open hosted by City of Ekurhuleni just 84 days after he thought he had lost his European Tour card.

The Englishman missed a par putt on the 18th green at the Portugal Masters in October to lose his playing privileges by just 100 euros but was handed a reprieve when Patrick Reed did not fulfil his quota of required events to retain his tour membership.


McIlroy three behind Storm at BMW SA Open

Rory McIlroy will lead the chasing pack attempting to overhaul Graeme Storm’s three-shot lead in the final round of the BMW SA Open hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni on Sunday morning.

The World Number Two almost withdrew from the tournament on Friday having strained a muscle in his back, but played through the pain to remain in contention at the Glendower Golf Club. Further treatment on Saturday morning enabled McIlroy to post a third round 67 which included a brilliant eagle two on the seventh hole where he holed out from 160 yards after a perfect nine iron.


Australia’s Richard Green on the verge of securing Asian Tour card

Australia’s Richard Green showed no signs of nerves on Friday the 13th when he carded a four-under-par 68 to head into the final round just one shot behind Japan’s Junya Kameshiro at the Asian Tour Qualifying School Final Stage presented by Sports Authority of Thailand on Friday.

Green’s three-day total of 19-under-par 197 at the Suvarnabhumi Golf and Country Club ran contrary to the stigma usually associated to the superstitious date considered by many to be unlucky as he remains well on course to top the class.


Injured McIlroy in the hunt at BMW SA Open

Rory McIlroy remains very much in the hunt for the BMW SA Open hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni despite playing his second round with breathing difficulties due to a back injury. The World Number Two made an uncharacteristic bogey-birdie-double bogey start to day at the Glendower Golf Club but any fears of a poor performance were soon wiped out as he covered his next 11 holes in eight under par.

The 27 year old drove the ball supremely in that period as he charged through the field to get to 11 under with two holes to play.


Rory McIlroy to headline 2017 BMW PGA Championship

Rory McIlroy has confirmed his participation in the 2017 BMW PGA Championship - the first tournament in the European Tour’s new Rolex Series - with the Northern Irishman set to headline the field at a revamped Wentworth Club from May 25-28.

The four-time Major Champion, who won the prestigious title in 2014, will take on the new-look West Course, which has been undergoing extensive changes since last year’s Championship.


Rory McIlroy makes flying start to BMW SA Open

Rory McIlroy got his 2017 campaign off to a flying start at the BMW SA Open as the World Number Two carded a five under par 67 to lie just one shot behind early pace-setters Keith Horne and Trevor Fisher Jnr at the Glendower Golf Club in the city of Ekurhuleni, South Africa.

In town as a favour to his great friend and tournament host Ernie Els, McIlroy did not disappoint the huge and expectant crowd which lined the fairways of Glendower to see one of golf’s biggest stars in action.


Australia’s Todd Sinnot impresses on Day 2 of Asian Tour Q-School

Australia’s Todd Sinnot struck up the most unlikely of partnerships with his local caddy by carding a flawless seven-under-par 65 to bring himself closer to securing his Asian Tour card at the Asian Tour Qualifying School Final Stage presented by Sports Authority of Thailand on Thursday.

Despite their language barrier, Sinnot still received sound advice from his caddy to post a two-day total of 15-under-par 129. The Australian went on a birdie blitz with seven birdies including five in his inward-nine and has remarkably only dropped one shot in two rounds at the Suvarnabhumi Golf and Country Club.
