The Cheltenham Festival Begins Today!

10 Mar

The Cheltenham Festival has started today, with the event taking place over the next 4 days. It is one of the biggest horse racing events of the calender, with prize money second only to the Grand National. In 2014, over 230,000 racegoers attended with approximately £250 million wagered in total.

Tony McCoy, who can often be seen wearing MacWet gloves, has announced that he will be retiring at the end of the National Hunt season. Despite being champion jockey twice at Cheltenham, the last time being 1998, many are hoping that he can pull out all the stops and go out with a bang.

Rory McIlroy took the trophy at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at the weekend.

McIlroy averaged the longest in the field at 317.9 yards, his mantle being the longest in the Desert! McIlroy managed to hit 83.3% of Greens in Regulation (GiR) – the fifth most successful in the category over the course of the week. His birdie chances were converted and his razor sharp putting gave him an average of 1.676 putts per GiR, 15th best in the field!

McIlroy’s performance left him an amazing average of 66.5 shots per rounds, better than his nearest competitor Alex Noran!
