Fan challenges olympic golfing champion and earn a hundred euros

On the last training day for the Ryder Cup, an American observer of the European team. After a few misses a putt called the fan that he could do better, which he could prove with one hundred dollars as a bet.

Rory Mcllroy, Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose failed all the ball of the relatively short distance to wells. The misses led to great hilarity among the present spectators.

Stenson had then his eye fall on a specific person who called out that he could better and gave the fan the opportunity to have a attempt.

Olympic champion Rose put one hundred dollars on the putt of the beholder. David Johnson, the name of the spectator, went to the challenge but what would like to and did not fail.

“I thought that the hundred dollars for him to point to would bring,” said Rose afterwards. “But that was hardly the case. This should be possible, I think. We focus plenty on the Ryder Cup and in between a bit of fun. A better way does not exist.”

Friday afternoon starts the Ryder Cup, the traditional competition between the American and European golfers. The Hazeltine National Golf Club in the U.s. Minnesota is this year the scene.
