Hunter Mahan breaks Barclays trophy after win, blames friend (PHOTO)

Hunter Mahan pulled away with three straight birdies late in the final round Sunday to win The Barclays golf tournament, ending more than two years without a title on the PGA Tour.

After his sixth career PGA win, Mahan posed for several surprise photos with his wife and daughter. But before leaving the 18th green for the post-tournament press conference, he posed for one last photo with New Jersey native David Finn.

As he knelt next to the 21-year-old Finn, who has muscular dystrophy, Mahan set the trophy down hard on the ground and broke it in two pieces. As Finn cracked up, Mahan smirked, "David did it!"

A few minutes earlier, Mahan's one-year-old daughter Zoe nearly pushed over the trophy after it was presented to her father.

In the media tent, when he was asked what happened to the trophy, Mahan joked.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” he said.

Maybe they should switch to plastic.
