Rory McIlroy made a disastrous quadruple-bogey eight at the opening hole in front of his home fans at The Open at Royal Portrush.

 

 

 

McIlroy struck his first shot out of bounds - just as he did in his practice round on Wednesday - and then hit his provisional shot into the deep rough.

From there, McIlroy was back in the deep rough and after eventually finding the green, went on to miss a six-foot putt for triple to card a quadruple-bogey eight. 

As it stands after McIlroy's opening hole, he is already seven strokes off the pace leaving himself plenty to ponder for the rest of his round.
