  • The stunning view from the seventh tee on the Glashedy Links at Ballyliffin

You have to hit fairways, the greens are getting firm, it's getting bouncy out there - it's going to be a really good test this week.

"The mindset was just keep going, I guess", said the 28-year-old, who would be just the second South African victor of the Irish Open after Bobby Locke in 1938 if he can win on Sunday. "To come back, and get the respect I've gotten, it's absolutely mind-blowing".

"My goal this year, it wasn't to win majors".

"I did that at Augusta".

"It's a tough track". So there's no excuse about not being prepared or not, and I've learned that as I went along. I played my first major there 11 years ago.

The 2018 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Golf Championship begins tomorrow at Ballyliffin in County Donegal with a top class field battling it out for the prestigious title won previous year by Spaniard John Rahm.

England sink Sweden to clinch World Cup semi-final berth
The first of those three games saw the Three Lions take on Sweden in Samara in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday afternoon. But Dele doubled the Three Lions' lead when he timed his run at the back post and headed in a cross delivered by Jesse Lingard .

Stars of film, television and sport have joined the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington for the event.

McIlroy, who won this title in 2016 but has missed the cut in four of the last five years, could not convert from 12 feet for eagle on the par-five fourth and quickly handed back the shot gained on the next after needing two attempts to escape a greenside bunker.

"It's still my career, and I still want to make the most of it and I still feel like I have a lot of time to make my mark on golf, but at the same time it doesn't keep me up at night thinking, if I never won another major, I can't live with myself", McIlroy said, explaining that his perspective on his life had shifted as he's gotten older.

A two-putt birdie on the par-five 17th got McIlroy back to level par for the day and two under overall, just three shots off the lead shared by Danny Willett, Ryan Fox, Peter Uihlein and Joakim Lagergren. "There's been a couple of times where I just haven't felt as prepared as I could have been walking on to the first tee on Thursday".

"I've done my work".
