Photographers and camera crews at The Open have been told to give Jon Rahm a wider berth after his frustrations boiled over during the first round.

He said: ‘I’m trying to walk and there’s way too many people in my way and I can’t go at my pace because they are in my way. 

‘Then I’m walking off 18 trying to deal with that unlucky moment… there’s somebody with a boom mic on my ass keeping up with Rory’s pace… that’s kind of the disregard that I existed.’ 

While the boom incident is understood to have involved a Netflix crew, photographers and cameramen at Hoylake were sent a reminder by organisers on Friday of guidelines around where they are meant to be positioned. 

Rahm, whose temper has been known to run hot on the course, previously snapped at camera crews at the US PGA Championship in May.
