Alcohol sales were temporarily halted Saturday and a man was arrested after he jumped over the ropes and dove into a greenside bunker on the par-three 16th, where he began performing “snow angels ” in the sand.
Zach Johnson, captain of the United States for the Ryder Cup in 2023, and Billy Horschel had previously exchanged angry words with spectators.
Johnson was filmed arguing with fans and could be heard saying “I’m sick of it” before demanding onlookers to “shut up”.
In another incident, Horschel was seen protesting to a spectator for shouting as one of his playing partners, qualifier Nicolo Galletti, was about to shoot.
“Bro, when he’s done shooting, shut up, man,” Horschel shouted.
Former BMW PGA Championship winner Byeong Hun An said the event was “totally out of control on every hole” in a social media post.
