Spectator Hurls Wiener At Tiger Woods During Putt
As if Tiger Woods needed anything else to distract him from his golf game.
A spectator at the Frys.com open was arrested after he threw a hot dog at Tiger Woods and shouted as Woods prepared for a putt. Of course, Woods was distracted and missed the putt.
Woods was completely lost in contemplation, about to land his 16th birdie of the day. As he was about to putt a crazed man ran towards the green at CordeValle Golf Club screaming Tiger’s name.
After already distracting Tiger, the man unleashed his secret weapon, a hot dog, bun and all. The bun fell flat, falling just in front of the man, but the hot dog flew across the line of Tiger’s putt.
According to The Daily Mail Woods said “I was kind of focusing on my putt when he started yelling. Looked like he wanted to be arrested really because he laid on the ground, put his hands behind his back and turned his head.”
Indian golfer Arjun Atwal described the event as one of the strangest he had ever witnessed on a course.
“That guy could have got shot, the way he ran out with that hot dog…The cops there could have thought it was something else,” Atwal said.
He was immediately arrested for disturbing the peace. Police described the man as “very cooperative.” Authorities did not release the culprit’s name.
American golfer Bryce Molder won the Frys.com open. He hasn’t won a tournament in 12 years in the PGA but makes more money than any other non-victorious player.
