Billy Horschel beat Jason Day on the first playoff hole at the AT&T Byron Nelson to claim his first win on Tour since 2014. Unfortunately, Billy was upstaged by a rather handsy fan in the crowd.
During one of his longer lag putts that led to his eventual win, Horschel had an enthusiastic fan in the background that was caught on live television. Thankfully Pat Perez, a fellow member of PXG troops, caught the moment and shared it with the world.
Here’s the photobomb in all of it’s awkward and hilarious glory:

It’s interesting that the bomb was caught during his putting, because it was Horschel’s putting that was dialed in. He became the third player this season to win a tournament in which he led in strokes gained in putting.
Thankfully it didn’t seem like Billy Ho noticed the goof in the background, and won without the distraction of a nipply fan. This isn’t the first photobomb in golf history, so here are some of the best from pros and fans alike:
