Rory McIlroy’s first round at the Open Championship got off to a rough start.
On the first hole, McIlroy’s opening tee shot hit a woman out of bounds and broke a cell phone in her pocket. Anna McKelvey, 34, from Northern Ireland, was standing near the fairway when she was hit in the stomach, according to Royal & Ancient.
McIlroy ended up with a quadruple-bogey 8 on the first hole and it didn’t get much better from there.
He then bogeyed the third and had a double bogey and triple bogey on the back nine.
He finished the first round 8-over-par and several strokes off the lead.
McIlroy will have some serious catching up to do if he wants to break his near five-year winless streak at a major tournament.
