Random fan swipes Rory McIlroy’s clubs in bizarre incident at Scottish Open

Published

on

We’ve had plenty of interesting moments in golf in 2021, and Friday at the Scottish Open served up another as a random fan decided he’d take a club from Rory McIlroy’s bag right from under his nose.

The incident occurred as McIlroy was waiting to tee off alongside playing partner John Rahm, with the two huddled around the Irishman’s bag with caddie Harry Diamond.

In a bizarre move, a fan then decided to swipe Mcilroy’s clubs, first going for the driver before selecting an iron, with the two pros and caddie left entirely dumbfounded by what had just happened.

Check out the incident below.

    Really shows how utterly sheltered these two are. No hey man what’s up? No bro? Just a lot of standing there looking for help. Man card revoked.

    The fact all three of them sat there like wimps tells you a lot about their character.

    How can Rory’s caddie just stand there and let it happen? Jesus…

      I’d imagine it was a combination of shock, “Is this a prank?” and enough experience not to approach someone who may have issues (he didn’t even tee the headcover up) and is holding a deadly weapon. Plus if you’re caddy jumps on someone on the first tee and it gets physical, you’re looking for a new caddy for the rest of the day as they’ll be off giving statements to the Old Bill.

      Thankfully it went off without incident.

Bubba Watson ends 15-year relationship with caddie Ted Scott

Published

on

Just hours after Justin Thomas announced his split with long-time caddie Jimmy Johnson, Bubba Watson also took to Twitter to state that he would be ending his 15 year relationship with caddie Ted Scott.

Watson shared a few photos in the sentimental social media post, including one of an embrace between him and Scott just moments after he had won the Masters. Bubba also wrote a note that revealed that the two had “deep talks” before deciding to split.

The 12-time PGA Tour winner has not yet announced who would be replacing Scott. Watson is coming off a disappointing season, where he recorded only three top-10s in 19 starts. He has not yet officially committed to any tournaments during the fall swing.

Published

Alejandro Del Rey fired an incredible round of 58 during the second round of the Challenge Tour’s Swiss Challenge to become just the fifth man to fire a 58 on a professional tour.

Del Rey’s 58 is also a very special feat as he is the only one of those five to shoot the score on a par 72 course, in a round that included an incredible start (back 9) where he went birdie-eagle-eagle.

Check out the moment Del Rey finished off his historic round below.

Jim Furyk (PGA Tour), Stephan Jaeger (Korn Ferry Tour), Ryo Ishikawa (Japan Tour), and Jason Bohn (Canadian Tour) are the other four men to fire a 58 on a professional tour.
