PHOTO: Hunter Mahan broke The Barclays trophy after winning it


Hunter Mahan had won The Barclays. He'd been presented with the trophy and was posing in pictures with it on the 18th green. And then that's when it fell apart -- the trophy, that is.

Mahan was posing with 21-year-old David Finn, who has muscular dystrophy, when he set the newly won trophy on the ground. It broke in two. According to the Star-Ledger, Mahan joked aloud, "David did it!"

At his post-tournament news conference, Mahan was asked about what happened.

"I have no idea what you're talking about," he said.

It's nothing a little Super Glue and the $1.44 million first-place check can't fix.
