GIF: Rory McIlroy Meets A Birdie Then Makes A Birdie As He Blasts Away Open Field

It was all about the birdies for Rory McIlroy on Day Two of the Open Championship at Hoylake.

The Northern Irishman began the day hoping to banish any thought of a Freaky Friday and did exactly that as he shot a 66 to go to 12 under par at Royal Liverpool.

However, amid all the great shots, McIlroy took the time to meet another kind of birdie as he lined up a putt on the eighth green.

The intruder casually made its way across the green, before realising he was on televisions across the world and scuttling away in a hurry:

Good on Rory for seeing the funny side of it.
