In a few weeks, the world's best will gather on the northern coastline of Northern Ireland for the 148th Open Championship at Royal Portrush.

Normally the NCG team would put together a film recreating famous shots from previous Opens at that year's venue, but as Portrush has only hosted golf's oldest major once – in 1951 – finding footage has proved difficult.

So instead, Dan Murphy and Mark Townsend headed to Rory McIlroy and Darren Clarke's stomping ground to predict what shots the pros will face in July and see if they could pull them off.

Mark looks like someone shot his dog?

Peter Earp says:

Played that 16th into the wind. I hit a 1 iron expecting it to be short, left myself a 1 foot put for a birdie
Was a memorable shot I won’t forget as it was straight as a die, just a foot from holing out
I did get a hole in one, on another visit but it was on the wonderful Pitch and Put Course
I love that Coast it’s magical apart from the weather

Chris Snape says:

It would have been good to see exactly what lie they were left with after their shots. Wouldn't even have to play them just a quick look would of made a better video. Still entertaining, What a scary course. Rory shot 61@16
