Rahm, who ended up carding a lacklustre 3-over 74 at Royal Liverpool on Thursday, blasted the media's presence in his first-round group that included both McIlroy and Justin Rose.
McIlroy ended up with a 71 with Rose matching Rahm's score of 74.

After the round, Rahm said:
"I’m trying to walk and there’s way too many people in my way and I can’t go at my pace because they are in my way.
"Then I’m walking off 18 trying to deal with that unlucky moment... there’s somebody with a boom mic on my ass keeping up with Rory’s pace... that’s kind of the disregard that I existed."
Photographers and camera crew have been told to give Rahm a wider berth in the second round.
