As if Rory McIlroy's life wasn't hectic enough as it is, he'll no doubt be busier than ever after winning the Open Championship on Sunday. 
 
Soon after his victory was final, he took a selfie with, it seems, as many people as he could find in the clubhouse at Royal Liverpool. The photo of that scene that I posted a few hours ago was by prominent Getty Images photographer David Cannon, and he shared another one a little later of a completely different moment.
 
 
This one captured McIlroy alone in the locker room, with just his golf bag and the claret jug. It's pretty special, too.
 
After that brief respite, McIlroy went out to celebrate with, among others, 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose. He said he's planning to take this week to revel in his accomplishment and then start focusing on what's next – specifically the PGA Championship.
