‘What the f*** are you doing?’

US Open: Kevin Na says his viral video was misunderstood and addresses the rough at the Wisconsin course,

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland tees off from the 15th hole during the British Open.

AFTER all the talk of how well he felt he has been playing despite the lack of results, it was all going sideways for Rory McIlroy on Thursday.

He was 5-over par through the first six holes and his British Open title quest appeared highly likely to be over before it began.

But McIlroy rallied furiously on the final 12 holes, playing them in 4-under to post a respectable 1-over 71 and keep himself in contention, four shots off the lead.

“I was nervous going out,” McIlroy said. “I was a little anxious, timid, probably just not as much belief in myself as I should have had. JP (Fitzgerald, his caddie) gave me a good talking on the (sixth) tee box, and sort of reminded me of where I was. That helped, that got me back in a positive frame of mind.”
