Taoiseach Enda Kenny appeared on Sky Sports coverage of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at the K Club today and it couldn't have gone worse.

The Fine Gael leader was present to enjoy the action and present Rory McIlroy with the winning trophy after his stunning success.

He probably wasn't prepared to fill air-time on Sky Sports during a suspension in play and made a very embarrassing gaffe.

Given the K Club's history with the Ryder Cup it's not surprising that the subject popped up... what was surprising was Kenny referring to it as a battle between Britian and the United States.

Viewers were understandably shocked and appalled. Does he really play off 13?
