The second Rory McIlroy let go of the ball that won him the 2014 British Open you knew somebody was going to get lucky.

Maybe you didn't know how lucky.

The fellow who caught Rory's ball is auctioning it off for a lot of money. At the time of this post the bid on Green Jacket Auctions was just shy of $4,000 with a few weeks of bidding left to do.
