Tiger Woods Attacked By Hot Dog-Slinging Fan

by at . Comments

Even uber-serious, oft-maligned, down-in-the-dumps Tiger Woods had to laugh off an incident in which he was attacked by a flying hot dog while putting Sunday.

Yes, this actually happened. And it was not Joslyn James.

A male fan ran toward the 7th green where Woods was lining up a putt, screamed out "Tiger!" and - relish the thought - threw a hot dog at the golfer.

It missed. By a lot. He was pummeled by security.

Tiger Woods, Hot Dog

Insert inappropriate joke about Tiger Woods and meat-slinging here.

Reports say the perpetrator dropped to the ground in waiting-to-be-arrested mode upon letting the frank loose. Woods, who was never in danger, could only laugh later.

"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, I was kind of focusing on my putt," said Woods.

"Next thing I know, he was just laying on the ground, and looked like he wanted to be arrested because he ... put his hands behind his back and turned his head."

He probably should have thrown a hamburger, given that the San Martin, Calif., PGA Tour event where this took place was ... wait for it ... the Frys.com Open.
