Not sure if you heard about the guy who threw a hot dog on a green while Tiger Woods was trying to make a putt.

He made a statement as to why he did it, and I must say, the reasoning doesn’t make sense.

Apparently, he got the idea after watching a movie about a stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver.

“I threw the hot dog toward Tiger Woods because I was inspired by the movie ‘Drive,’” he said. “As soon as the movie ended, I thought to myself, ‘I have to do something courageous and epic. I have to throw a hot dog on the green in front of Tiger.’”

“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,” Woods said. “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.”

He still insists that he has nothing against Tiger.

“I honestly wish Tiger the best. One day I hope he breaks Jack Nicklaus’ record,” Kelly said. Golf legend Nicklaus won 18 major championships during his professional career. Woods has won 14.

Based on the video, you can see the moment he threw the dog he walked on the green and immediately went down to the ground. He was arrested for ” disturbing the peace”.


On a more serious note, Tiger didn’t play too badly at the Open, he finished tied 30th and South African Ernie Els played brilliantly and finished tied 4th with 4 shots of the winner. Tiger had a very poor start but his game seemed to improve as the tournament went on. This might be a sign that his game will improve as he plays more competitive golf.
