RORY McILROY, sporting a new short haircut, gave Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and a host of golfing legends a true taste of Ireland last night.

McIlroy chose a menu with a distinctly Irish flavour for his 'Champions Dinner' at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.

The 24-year-old Ulsterman tomorrow opens his defence of the US PGA title he won at Kiawah last year. McIlroy is a big winner with the Irish food industry with his choice for this prestigious occasion, which brought together the surviving winners of the PGA, one of golf's four 'Major' championships.

After a starter of goats cheese and beetroot salad, McIlroy's main course was a 'Duet of Irish Beef Tenderloin'. Irish fried champ was on the side.

Tradition also requires McIlroy to present a gift to each of the champions but he was keeping that as a surprise. Padraig Harrington, the PGA Champion in 2008, presented his dinner guests the following year with a menu featuring Irish Beef Stew in Guinness.
