British Open champion Rory McIlroy is finally getting a payoff for being a Manchester United fan.

Manchester United invited McIlroy to parade the Claret Jug after his two-shot victory at Royal Liverpool.

During his victory speech, McIlroy gave a shout out to his favorite soccer team.

McIlroy said: "Even being a Manchester United fan I got great support this week and I want to thank everyone for that."

That moment in the speech got McIlroy a round of boos from the fans at the course.
