Rory McIlroy Empowers Junior Golfers 


On August 20, 2012, Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts and its global brand ambassador, Rory McIlroy, got back to basics with a free youth clinic at City Parks Foundation’s Junior Golf Center in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.  


During the clinic, 50 dedicated youth golfers from the CityParks Golf program, ages 12 to 16, got the opportunity of a lifetime to receive coaching from the world’s number one ranked golfer.  McIlroy led the day with a demonstration of his practice routine and answered questions from the students.  The young golfers then rotated through driving, putting and chipping stations while receiving tips and techniques on how to improve their game. In recent years, New York City has become a hotbed for aspiring young players who train at the Junior Golf Center. Many of the players in attendance have recently won or achieved marked success at local Met PGA tournaments, shooting just above par on numerous occasions.
