Spectator shouts at Tiger, Twitter reacts
A disrespectful spectator shouted during Tiger Woods tee shot at The Open Championship on Sunday, sparking much anger on social media.
The former world number one showed that he still has the game to compete in the majors, as is evidence a couple superb rounds at Carnoustie.
But on the 18th, a spectator did his best to derail Woods’ good form by shouting during his backswing, arguably the most disrespectful thing you can do at the course. Thankfully, it didn’t affect the result too much as Woods still hit a booming drive down the fairway.
