Fan Chucks Hot Dog at Tiger Woods During Tournament

At best, the beleaguered golfer got a free meal.

Tiger Woods chips to the green on the ninth hole during the final round of the Open golf tournament Sunday.


At the Open on Sunday, a fan ran toward the seventh green at CordeValle in San Martin, California, yelled “Tiger!” and threw a hot dog at Tiger Woods.


Police arrested the 31-year-old dog-slinger, whose name was not released.


Writes Yahoo! Sports:


“The meat-slinger knew he was in for it; as soon as he threw his meal (which, according to the AP, came apart in mid-flight, the bun barely reaching the green and the hot dog flopping to a stop on the dance floor) he dropped to the ground and lay in the classic "Cops" waiting-to-be-arrested pose, without the meaningless protests of innocence. Woods was never in any danger of being hit by meat or meat by-products, and after his round was over could smile about the incident.”
