McIlroy endures 'frustrating day'

Rory McIlroy is left "frustrated" after an opening level-par 72 puts him eight off the pace in the Irish Open at Portstewart.

"I felt the way I hit the ball from tee to green that I could have made a few birdies," said McIlroy after a round finished off by 11 straight pars.

"I couldn't get any momentum going whatsoever."
