ireland. yesterday was day one of the 148th open, or the british open as it is called, although never call it that here. it hasn't been held in northern ireland for nearly 70 years because of decades of fighting and conflict some wondered if it'd ever return but it's back, and a record number of spectators are expected this weekend to take in the majestic views, as the cliffs meet the sea here at royal portrush, and to watch some incredibly difficult links style golf the open, golf's oldest tournament, back for its 148th edition. this time at royal portrush in northern ireland it's the first time the major tournament has been played here since 1951 now it's back. >> rory mcilroy. >> reporter: with all eyes on northern ireland's own rory mcilroy, hoping to lift the
