PHOTO: An in-flight magazine thinks Rory McIlroy’s a lefty


Rory McIlroy has pretty much clinched the European Tour's Race to Dubai money title. That's how good of a season he's had: The European Tour's Finals Series, despite skewing massive points toward it, has been rendered, more or less, meaningless in deciding the season-long champion.

In fact, McIlroy has skipped the first two finals events to prep for a 2015 trial against his former representation.

Maybe, then, that's why an in-flight magazine figured McIlroy may as well play the season finale in Dubai as a lefty. Writer Matt Cooper found Emirates Airlines' Open Skies previewed the DP World Tour Championship in their November issue with a picture of the world No. 1 in a lefty pose.

It's an obvious Photoshop mistake, flipping the Ulsterman, but it would be kind of interesting to see McIlroy take on the 60-player field with a bag of left-handed clubs.
