Collin Morikawa had a flawless Sunday on the course at the PGA Championship. But when the time came to accept the Wanamaker Trophy, one of the biggest in sports, well — he had a bit more trouble.

Come on! That lid isn’t attached any better than that? Anyway, at least the trophy wasn’t full of champagne or soup or ashes or anything.
