Hot dog tossing: Tiger Woods knows what it feels like to be Chuck Knoblauch

Posted by: Michael Rand under Golf Updated: October 10, 2011 - 12:11 PM

When hundreds of people throw hot dogs at an athlete, Tom Kelly comes out into left field. When one person throws a hot dog at an athlete, the thrower gets arrested. Per ESPN.com:

A male spectator ran onto a green shouting Tiger Woods' name and then threw a hot dog at him Sunday during the final round of the Frys.com Open in Northern California.

The unidentified person was quickly subdued and Woods was not in any danger. In fact, within a minute, he had settled back over the putt he was attempting.

"I looked up and the hot dog was in the air," Woods said of the incident that occurred on the seventh hole, his 16th of the day. "(The fan) wanted to be in the news. I guess he is now."

The tournament's director of security, Dan Diggins, would not disclose the person's name. "He's just an idiot," Diggins said. He added the 31-year-old man didn't get within 40 feet of Woods, who was finishing up the Frys.com Open with a final-round 68.

Sgt. Jose Cardoza of the Santa Clara County police department said the 31-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace, a misdemeanor. He was escorted from the property.

Cardoza said only that the man was from Santa Rosa.

"He was very cooperative," Cardoza said. "They said, 'Why did you do this?' He just shook his head in guilt or remorse. He didn't give a reason why he did it."

THIS IS A CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT.

Cardoza said the man was 31 and from Santa Rosa, only to cover for the fact that he was really a little bit older and from Dakota County. Fess up, Clarence. It will just be our little secret.
