Rory McIlroy Champagne Bottle Goes Off Prematurely (Video)

Rory McIlroy champagne bottle

The Rory McIlroy champagne bottle took on a life of its own at the Ryder Cup. You would think that McIlroy, who has had some success in the the world of sports, would know a thing or two about champagne etiquette. Also, he’s European. I thought Europeans were taught how to treat wine and champagne while in the womb. Apparently not.

The Rory McIlroy champagne bottle was left uncovered, which, as any party animal knows, means that the cork is a live wire, ready to go at any minute. And go it does. The cork ejects and gives the golfer quite a scare.

The only way this could have been funnier is if it hit some golf official in the eye, resulting in the Europe team being assessed strokes, and losing the Ryder Cup. That would be awesome, but it wasn’t to be.

Here’s the video of a Rory McIlroy champagne bottle adventure. Put on your goggles:

He’s a golfer. That’s like a yacht owner not knowing how to wear a blazer. Jeez.
