A “rogue golfer” wearing a Pride flag as a cape was captured sprinting onto the golf course at the US Open tournament in Torrey Pines, California, and hitting a few shots before being tackled by security on June 20.
John Patrick Scheil, a North Carolina resident attending the US Open, caught the moment on video. Scheil told Storyful he saw the man duck under the ropes and run onto the fairway with a club and two golf balls in hand.
In the footage, the man is seen swinging the golf club and dancing around the course before security intervenes.
Although Scheil said he didn’t know who the man was, he noted that the crowd was in shock when he stormed the course, then cheered when security tackled him. Credit: John Patrick Scheil via Storyful
