Rory McIlroy was forced to change his phone’s passcode after a TV station unwittingly broadcasted it.

The camera caught Rory inputting the code during an interview in the clubhouse which was subsequently broadcast.

Millions of fans watched it – and they could clearly make out Rory’s passcode.

But Rory (25) laughed it off.

The golfer – who is hotly tipped to win the USPGA in Valhalla – joked on Twitter about the incident.

“Passcode change… Now time to play some golf!” the world number one wrote on Twitter.

He’s got bigger fish to fry….
