AKRON, Ohio (AP) The claret jug is not out of sight. Rory McIlroy is just trying to get it out of his mind.
McIlroy had plenty of fun with golf's oldest trophy after his wire-to-wire win in the British Open. He celebrated with friends in England, took the jug out for a night on the town in Belfast with his buddies, and brought it with him when he returned home to Florida. And yes, it's with him at Firestone this week at the Bridgestone Invitational.
"I've sort of been taking pictures of it beside the TV and on top of the toilet and wherever it's been," he said. "It's definitely nice to have it in my possession."
