SANDWICH, England – After a near-perfect opening Saturday at The Open, Rory McIlroy kept quiet his moving day move with bogeys on numbers 11 and 13.

As McIlroy’s tee shot sailed into the rough, McIlroy held his iron over his shoulder and launched the bat into the air, end over end, like a tomahawk. When McIlroy was asked about the moment after his round, it became a matter of semantics.
“That really wasn’t a club throw,” he shrugged, “it was just a little toss.”
When asked if he was “pissed,” McIlroy continued to defend, “I wasn’t as pissed off as Tyrrell Hatton was yesterday,” McIlroy smiled.
Hatton, who has a history of running hard on the course, was spotted on Friday’s broadcast flipping a fan at number 11 and breaking his hole in two three holes later.
In comparison, McIlroy’s moment of frustration during the third round could, in fact, easily qualify as a “small throw.”
