Rory pops his champagne bottle a little too early as Europe celebrate Ryder Cup victory
Rory McIIroy barely put a foot wrong at Gleneagles all weekend until it came to his - somewhat premature and accidental - victory celebrations
The Holywood golfer was standing with Graeme McDowell as Ryder Cup victory celebrations were about to get underway. Unfortunately for Rory, however, he had loosened the top of his champagne bottle a little too early in anticipation.
So just as US player Zach Johnson was about to putt, the top flew off McIlroy's bottle.
Graeme McDowell, who was standing beside McIlroy, started giggling, but tried to hide his laughter because of the game.
Johnson buried the putt and halved the match but McIlroy immediately went to apologize and explain what had happened.
