Rory McIlroy says poor driving led to a disappointing six-over-par 78 in the first round of the US Open at Erin Hills.
The world number two from Northern Ireland hit just five fairways and was a regular visitor to the thigh-deep fescue rough.
McIlroy - the 2011 US Open champion - is joint 143rd, 13 shots behind leader Rickie Fowler.
