After the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, it looked like Rory McIlroy might snag a fourth PGA Tour title in five starts thanks to a Sunday 64 that got him within two shots of the lead.

But Monday's final round didn't turn out the way the No. 1 in the world had hoped. Rory struggled for most of the day with his putter, settling for a closing 70 that left McIlroy in a T-5.

That disappointing closing round didn't stop Rory from having some fun on the flight out of Boston, as he was videotaped freaking his caddie, JP Fitzgerald, out while Fitzgerald was taking a nap.

The video was fun, and despite not leaving with another trophy, it looks like Rory is still in pretty great spirits as the Tour heads to Colorado.
