McIlroy at Gleneagles

Sportsfile Images of 2014

This is a picture of Rory McIlroy of mine that I like, taken at the Ryder Cup back in September in Gleneagles in Scotland.

McIlroy, who was representing Team Europe, was playing from a bunker back onto the 8th fairway on Day 1.

The light that morning was wonderful and very dramatic. I positioned myself in a good place to try and capture this striking landscape. When he went in the bunker, the sunlight came through the clouds and lit up the course to give me this memorable picture from a memorable win for Europe later in the week.
