Rory McIlroy’s friend fills Claret Jug with Jagermeister
Rory McIlroy said after winning the 2014 Open Championship on Sunday that he was going to follow in the footsteps of Phil Mickelson by filling the Claret Jug with some nice wine. Mickelson revelaed last week that he drank a $40,000 bottle of wine out of the trophy when he won the tournament in 2013, so that kind of set the standard. Phil mentioned nothing about Jagermeister.
We’re not sure if Rory followed through with the wine promise or not, but we do know that one of his buddies poured Jagermeister into the Claret Jug at one point while McIlroy’s mom watched. That was either before or after the whole gang posed for a photo.

As Eye on Golf pointed out, McIlroy also celebrated the big victory with fellow major winner Justin Rose.
While some of you may be surprised that McIlroy and company still drink Jagermeister at age 25, it should be noted that the Northern Irishman has a history with the stuff. Remember that picture we showed you back in 2011? It’s great to see Rory back on top of the golf world.
