Blessed with one of the most ad­mired swings in the mod­ern era, here’s how you can steal Rory’s key moves.

Rory McIl­roy ranks inside the top three on the PGA Tour in driv­ing dis­tance, ‘strokes gained – off the tee’ and ‘strokes gained – ap­proach’. But one thing that sep­a­rates the great from the good is that they never stop try­ing to im­prove. The 28-yearold has worked with the same coach, Michael Ban­non, since he was a boy so de­vel­op­ing his tech­nique has al­ways been evo­lu­tion rather than rev­o­lu­tion.

“I don’t stray too much from what I’m al­ways try­ing to do be­cause Michael and I have worked to­gether for so long and fig­ured out what works and what doesn’t,” McIl­roy re­vealed to Golf World. “But I saw a cou­ple of videos of my swing at the start of the year and there were a cou­ple of po­si­tions we weren’t to­tally happy with.

“We’ve worked hard over the last few months and my swing feels like it’s in a re­ally good place now.”
