Wee mac's No 1 picK
JUST 15 minutes after sending the tweet to Jay Townsend that reverberated around the world, Rory McIlroy was relaxed and enjoying the banter with the fans in the tented village.
McIlroy and Graeme McDowell featured in 'Live at the Open', a Q&A compered by Shane O'Donoghue.
One of the questions concerned their favourite courses in the south of Ireland.
G-Mac opted for Waterville in Kerry.
"I only played it for the first time a few years ago. It's a magnificent links," he said.
Rory's first reaction was: "Am I being honest?" (cue laughter from the crowd) and then he answered: "The European Club. I really enjoy playing there."
