Morning Drive brings fans the latest golf news and trends, as well as hints and tips on how to play the best golf.
He will then travel to Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania to cover the US Open from 10-16 June for CNN Worldwide. Irish eyes will be on Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell in the hope that either can achieve a second US Open win.

He will be back in Ireland to cover the Irish Open at Carton House, Co. Kildare at the end of June.
