Rory And Rickie Dodge Strange “Gift” Thrown By Spectator

Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler were partners during the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. They were on the 6th tee box when a spectator threw a golf ball at them with an ear plug strangely stuck to it.

He was quickly escorted off the property by Charlotte police.

“So random. The guy tried to say it was a gift. I don’t know why you would give a gift of a golf ball with an earplug attached to it.”

Worse things have been thrown on the stages of musical artists, like say a fine ladies undies. Thankfully that wouldn’t happen on a golf course but why would anyone throw a golf ball at a golfer? They have a bag full of them. With an ear plug attached too? It makes zero sense! The fan must have been a little nuts or something.

McIlroy ended up making a birdie, while Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama made par on the hole. I don’t know what the fan was trying to do but he definitely made a rainy day interesting.
