Lytham - Rory McIlroy's errant drive struck a teenage spectator on the head in the first round at the Open Championship on Thursday, leading to the Northern Irishman making double-bogey to drop off the leaderboard.
McIlroy's tee shot at No 15 went way left, hitting a 16-year-old kid from Bristol, England, called Jason Blue and leaving him dazed on the ground. After his head was bandaged up, Blue received a signed glove from the world's second-ranked player.
The ball ended up out of bounds next to a portable trailer, and McIlroy had to take a one-stroke penalty and tee off again. He made a 6 to slip to 1-under, five shots behind leader Adam Scott.
