Golf fans respond hilariously on Twitter after pro wins eye-catching trophy

December 8, 2019

There’s a lot of great trophies out there. Iconic and austere trophies, the kind that you dream about winning as a child. Like the Claret Jug, for instance…

And then, of course, you have trophies like this. The kind that become iconic for all the wrong reasons. Peter Fowler collected one of golf’s newest icons over the weekend at the MCB Tour Championship, which you can see for yourself below.

The trophy is supposed to be a Seychelles Nut, which is native to the island of Praslin. The resemblance is certainly very accurate, it must be said.

But the internet being the internet, it had different ideas. It thought it resembled something else, and had a field day on Twitter making fun of the trophy.
