:Headline: The Open: A shot-by-shot look at Rory McIlroy's nightmare quadruple-bogey start:
The Northern Irishman carded a quadruple-bogey eight on the first hole.
PA | 1mo

Open favourite Rory McIlroy had a nightmare start to his bid to win the Claret Jug at Royal Portrush after a quadruple-bogey eight at the first.

Northern Ireland's big hope for a home winner could not have begun in worse fashion, having hit his tee shot out of bounds.

PA looks at just how badly it went, shot by shot.

1 – McIlroy takes a two-iron off the tee for safety but tugs it left and it lands five feet out of bounds having hit and damaged the mobile phone of a spectator.

2 – Penalty stroke

3 – The Northern Irishman reloads but his second attempt off the tee, again with an iron, finishes in the left rough

4 – Hits a shot from 155 yards into a bush to the left of the green and is forced to call an unplayable lie
