RORY McIlroy is giving one lucky fan the chance to win a place in the Pro Am at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open next month.

The Rory Foundation, which was set up by the Holywood golfer, is asking keen fellow golfers to upload a video of their best trick shot to Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #RoryTrickShot.

McIlroy will then choose his favourite shot and the winner will be invited to take a place in this year's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Pro Am, which will take place at Portstewart Golf Club on Wednesday, July 5.

He said: "I've had a go at some trick shots in my time, some better than others, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what people have to offer.

"I'll be choosing my favourite clip and inviting the winner to come and join us at the Pro Am at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. The Pro Am is always a great, fun day and I'm delighted to be able to give someone this exciting opportunity to play with top golfers and rub shoulders with celebrities".

All entrants must be over 18 and live in the UK or Ireland. Entrants must hold a handicap of 18 or less for men and 24 or less for women.

The winner will also get flights up to the value of £350 and stay at Blackrock House B&B Portrush for up to two nights. The closing date is midnight on Wednesday, June 21.
