RORY McIlroy yesterday spoke of his shock at the death of his friend, Nevin Spence. He is a keen supporter of Ulster rugby and was shocked by the Spence family tragedy.

"I knew Nevin and have been around him a lot," said McIlroy in the US, where he is playing this week.

"To think that we are not going to see him again or see him on the rugby pitch. You know he had such a bright future as well.

"He will always be remembered. He was a great rugby player and I think everyone will agree he was an even better person and he will definitely be long in the memory of a lot of people," McIlroy said.
