Shortly after McIlroy was announced as the winner by a vote of his peers, the tour shared video of the four-time major champ being informed of his latest award by 18-time major champ Jack Nicklaus, whose name adorns the tour's POY trophy. We're guessing McIlroy must have thought something was up with Nicklaus and a bunch of cameras there, but he seemed genuinely stunned to learn the result and later said he was, "at a loss for words," in a teleconference with reporters. Anyway, here's the funny exchange:
NICKLAUS: "They've got one other one they thought they'd bring out for you today."
MCILROY: "That's the Nicklaus Trophy. I've already got two of those."
NICKLAUS: "You've got three now."
Yep, really, Rory. Funny, we're guessing Brooks said the same thing.
