Rory McIlroy putts across entire green into bunker at British Open (GIFs)
As has been standard operating procedure for the young man for some time now, Rory McIlroy once again struggled mightily during tournament play on Thursday during the first round of the British Open at Muirfield.
Rory carded a 79 during a disastrous round, leaving him already eight over par after eighteen holes, thirteen strokes behind early leader Zach Johnson (-5).
Perhaps providing an apt illustration of Rory’s terrible day came on the 15th hole, when a putt from way out not only blew by the hole with a lot of speed, it actually rolled off the green, down into a bunker. Ugh.
And McIlroy’s dejected response to the somewhat pathetic effort:
Rory ended up with a double bogey six on the hole, which proved to be an accurate depiction of poor Rory’s woeful round. Hopefully, Caroline Wozniacki was there when he moped off the 18th green to give him a smooch. It’s something.
