Worst weather I've played in - Thomas shares video of sodden Portrush

The weather wreaked havoc at The Open last week as some of the world's best golfers struggled to get to grips with Royal Portrush.

Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson all missed the cut, but it was in the final round, with the tee times moved forward due to a weather warning, where the rain really hammered down.
