Fan Throws Hot Dog at Tiger


It makes you wonder what Steve Williams would have done. Tiger Woods' former caddie, who was considered overprotective of his former boss, might have gone ballistic at this latest incident at CordeValley Golf Club in San Martin, Calif.

On the seventh green while Woods was getting ready to hit a birdie putt in Sunday's final round of the Frys.com Open, a fan emerged from the crowd, ran toward him and threw a hot dog in his direction.

"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," said Woods, who didn't seem fazed.

"When I looked up, the hot dog was already in the air," Woods said. "The bun was kind of disintegrating.

"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 31-year-old man was arrested for disturbing the peace and removed from the course. Since that's a misdemeanor, the man, who's from nearby Santa Rosa, wasn't taken to jail and his name was not released.

For the record, Woods missed his birdie putt.
