Busy first day of the 2018 Irish Open in Ballyliffin and I headed out with the Jon Rahm, GMac and Rafa group in perfect conditions.

It was a case of "if you keep it in the fairway you can score well" but if you miss it, it's Russian roulette in the rough.

Jon Rahm whacks the rough in anger after fluffing his chip. Video below.
Scoring in the group was surprisingly modest but I did get a fascinating insight from Jon and his caddie Adam Hayes into the meticulous preparation that goes into every shot.

About a two minute discussion went into this one.

But no matter how much you talk, sometimes there's just no way to figure out the Ballyliffin rough! This was painful.
