Chalk it up to the price of fame.

Rory McIlroy had to change the security code on his cell phone during the rain delay after CBS showed him entering it.

It was reported as his birthday, 4589, and the young superstar was quick to respond via social media.

“Passcode changed … Now time to play some golf!” he wrote on Twitter.

MCDOWELL LEAVES ANGRY

Graeme McDowell had his dander up for not being able to play his ball up Sunday at the PGA Championship.

Despite more than an inch of rain falling at Valhalla, the round was started without preferred lies – playing the ball up, or lift, clean and place – and McDowell said having to play the long course that way did few favours for shorter hitters.
