NOT A BAD way to finish up a memorable year.
Rory McIlroy rounded off a great 12 months – which included a first major victory - by taking to the famous Jumeirah Burj Al Arab helipad yesterday.
The Holywood man is a ‘global ambassador’ for the brand.
He failed to catch world number one Luke Donald in the Race to Dubai stakes recently and complained of fatigue and illness after a frantic few months.
McIlroy is not the first to strut their stuff on the tower – the likes of Andre Agassi and Roger Federer played a game or two of tennis in 2005.
