The four-time Major winner showed some frustration after missing a green

You might think that having a child would relax you on the golf course and allow you to accept the bad shots.

However, golf always has a way of getting the better of you - no matter how great at the game you are.

Rory McIlroy showed some frustration at the Zozo Championship in snapping an iron after missing a green on his way to a double bogey.

The four-time Major winner needed an up-and-down from 140 yards on the 18th hole to save par, although he pushed it right and went on to make a six.

Rory struggled in his opening 73 (+1) where came home in 40 after a three under par front nine.
