Rory McIlroy carded an opening round 64, a course-record at Royal Aberdeen, getting off on the right foot at the Euro Tour's Scottish Open.

His most notable shot of the day came on this wind-assisted tee shot when he drove the green on the 436-yard par-4 13th.

Even the camera man couldn't believe how far that ball traveled.

McIlroy two-putted from there for birdie.
