[1]GULLANE, Scotland — Rory McIlroy’s year of frustration continued Thursday during the first round of the Open Championship at Muirfield, where he shot an 8-over-par 79.

The No. 2-ranked player in the world hasn’t won since November and he has a lot of ground to make up at the year’s third major championship if he is to even make the cut. He played the back nine in 7-over par with two double bogeys.

“It’s strange, I mean, I wish I could stand up here and tell you guys what’s wrong or what I need to do to make it right, because I feel like I’ve got the shots,” McIlroy said afterward. “It’s just a matter of going through the right process to hit them and that’s something that I obviously haven’t been doing recently.
