Hunter Mahan collected a $1.44 million paycheck for winning The Barclays on Sunday as well as a trophy that was bigger than his daughter.

The paycheck is presumably safe, the trophy not so much.

Mahan broke the trophy with (potentially) a little help from his daughter Zoe. Here's a look at everything pre-broken trophy. Yeah, I think she's the culprit:

Then Mahan posed with a kid named David Finn and according to NJ.com blamed him when the trophy split in two.

Then after all of that Mahan hilariously asked if he could just eschew the trophy and throw a ring of flowers around his neck in celebration.

"Am I supposed to put this on, Kentucky Derby style?" he said.

A pretty funny ending to what was a great week of golf.
