Occasionally, I depart from my normal film rambling to talk about another favourite topic of mine – golf.

 

Back in 2005, I played golf with a relaxed, easy-going 16 year-old.  Today, he became the number 1 golfer in the world!  Rory McIlroy’s win in the Honda Classic (by 2 over Tiger Woods) elevated him past Luke Donald in the Official World Golf Rankings.  It is an amazing achievement for someone so young.

 

In honour of the moment, I thought I’d share my Film Pie blog from 22 November 2005 (which I wrote just after getting off a plane in Brisbane).  It’s one of the best stories I have in my cluttered head.  Just click here.
