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.
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.
