Bannon wins as Rory swings
MICHAEL BANNON'S contribution to Rory McIlroy's success has been recognised by his selection as the Philips Manager of the Month for November.
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.
