Just discovered this image of the Spanish odd couple on Alex Noren’s blog. Excellent.
Alvaro Quiros arrived at the final hole of the Dubai World Championship– a sinuous, uphill par-5– with a one-shot advantage over Paul Lawrie and two over World Number One Luke Donald. (continue reading…)
That was Rory McIlroy’s rather frank assessment of his tournament prospects after carding an untidy 71 in this morning’s third round of the European Tour’s season-ending Gulf showpiece. (continue reading…)
