At Tiger Woods’ first tournament in two months, a man ran onto the green and attempted to throw a hotdog at the notorious golfer, then immediately sat down with his hands behind his back looking like “he wanted to be arrested,” as Woods put it.
The random hotdog toss tok place at the Frys.com Open at the CordeValle course in Northern California on the seventh green at the end of Tiger’s final round.
He says he was focusing on his putt when it happened:
”When I looked up, the hot dog was already in the air. The bun was kind of disintegrating.”
The heckler came out hollering, probably something about Tiger’s famous sexting/adultery scandal back in 2009, but Woods hardly saw him approaching…
”Some guy just came running on the green, and he had a hot dog, and evidently, I don’t know how he tried to throw it, but I was kind of focusing on my putt when he started yelling. Next thing I know, he laid on the ground, and looked like he wanted to be arrested because he put his hands behind his back and turned his head.”
The unnamed Santa Rosa man who threw the dog, was reportedly not drunk and did not give a reason for his actions. He was arrested and removed from the tournament but was not put in jail.
