Rory McIlroy reacts after missing a putt on the 9th green on the first day of the Irish Open in Newcastle, Northern Ireland on May 28, 2015The world number one failed to record a single birdie in a shock round of nine-over par 80 on a day of constant wind along with intermittent showers at Royal County Down, Newcastle in Northern Ireland. McIlroy's score left the four-time Major Champion with the embarrassment of being last among the morning starters while fellow PGA Championship and US Open winner Martin Kaymer, who played alongside McIlroy, was only marginally better with a round of eight-over 79. McIlroy's score is his poorest in Europe since a similar score of 80 on day two of the 2010 Open Championship at St. Andrews.

BMW PGA ChampionshipBy Bernie McGuire NEWCASTLE, Northern Ireland (Reuters) - World number one Rory McIlroy faces missing the cut for a second week in succession after posting a nine-over-par 80 in the opening round at his home event, the Irish Open, on Thursday. On a day of strong winds and intermittent showers, McIlroy failed to record a single birdie in a nightmare round at the par 71 Royal County Down course. "So, nothing went right and I was trying hard to birdie the last to try and break 80, but it just didn’t quite happen." Fellow PGA Championship and U.S. Open winner Martin Kaymer did only marginally better with an eight over par 79.
