Rory McIlroy is in the early stages of his first round at the Open and he's off to a relatively good start. McIlroy tapped in for par on the first hole before picking up a shot on No. 2 with a tap in birdie. McIlroy nearly eagled the hole, with his approach shot rolling to just a few inches from the cup.
Contending at Royal Liverpool will be a lot easier if McIlroy keeps hitting shots like that.
