Bannon, who has been McIlroy's swing coach for the past 15 years, recently gave up his coaching position in Bangor GC to be available to the world No 1 on a full-time basis.

The master of swing, who has been named the 2012 UK High Performance Coach of the Year in the non-Olympic category, is one of Ireland's top teaching professionals, with five of his former juniors now in the pro ranks.
