According to USA Today's For The Win, Rory was having a short conversation with some of his pals at a certain clubhouse and he revealed his password by accident. A video caught Rory entering his password. The video made its way online and was shared on the video-sharing application Vine.

In the video, anyone can easily figure out the numbers that Rory had inputted on the passcode lock of his iPhone screen. Apparently, Rory had used his birthdate for his password. The professional British golfer was born on May 4, 1989.

Fortunately, Rory found out about the video and immediately changed his password in case his phone ever get lost or stolen.

Meanwhile, Rory played one of his best performances at the 2014 U.S. PGA Championship. He won the tournament at Valhalla, which has starred an all-star cast including Phil Mickelson, Ricki Fowler, and Henrik Stenson, who all trailed behind Rory.

Rory was reportedly delighted of his recent victory. "It is the most satisfying to win it in fashion and this style, it means a lot," said Rory via Fox Sports.

"It means that I know that I can do it."

According to Rory, he was particularly blissful of the fact that he came from behind and was able to come out on top of the best golf players in the world. He also expressed his happiness on Twitter.

The 25-year-old four-time, who is coming off from a breakup with Danish tennis athlete Caroline Wozniacki, is currently the World No. 1. He has two major titles in 2014 including the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool and the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla. In addition to the two major titles that he had won, he also won his first-ever World Gold Championship at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone.
