    Sometimes, all it takes is an apology.

    The PGA Tour was planning to fine Rory McIlroy $25,000 for throwing his 3-iron into a water hazard in frustration during the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March. However, then McIlroy said he was sorry for losing his cool in a post-round TV interview.

    "The fine was reduced from $25,000 to $5,000 because I said I was sorry in the TV interview afterwards," said McIlroy, according to ESPN UK.

    After McIlroy's club found the bottom of the hazard of the par-5 eighth on the TPC Blue Monster at Trump Doral, The Donald hired a SCUBA diver to fetch the club from the murky depths. The next day, Trump presented McIlroy with the club in a PR stunt.
