Rory Gets Heckler Kicked Out Of Ryder Cup

Things started to get a little chippy on Saturday at the Ryder Cup and that’s not even considering the back-and-forth nature of the matches on the course at Hazeltine. A well-lubricated and loud American fanbase did their best to give the United States a distinct home-field advantage that, at times, bordered on inappropriate. 

On a few occasions, the raucous behavior turned ugly. Naturally, big-name players like Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia were the recipient of the barbs, and for the most part, both used the hostile environment as fuel. The pair of Europeans did a fair share of egging on the crowds… 

However, walking from a green to the next tee during the afternoon four-ball matches, one over-zealous fan took things too far. (Warning: the video contains some strong language.)

Rory, clearly on tilt with the jeers from the crowd, stopped dead in his tracks and had the heckler removed. When he got back between the ropes, however, McIlroy turned that fuel into fire, torching the American dream team of Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka 3&1.

Hey U.S. fans, maybe it’s best if you just leave Rory alone.
