chdowns to help lead North Carolina Centra

    导出博客文章A fan was ejected from Hazeltine National Golf Club on Saturday after directing
    a crude comment at Team Europe star Rory McIlroy.?Fans attending the Ryder Cup
    couldnt resist heckling McIlroy throughout the day, and while some of it was
    playful, it grew increasingly nasty as Saturday afternoon four-ball was
    contested.After McIlroy made an unlikely birdie on the seventh hole, and
    punctuated his celebration by turning toward Lake Hazeltine and howling with
    glee, it got particularly ugly. On the walk to the eighth tee, a good 300 yards
    up a hill with the crowd lining both sides of the ropes, one fan leaned toward
    the Northern Irishman and screamed an obscenity at him.McIlroy, who had been
    reluctant to acknowledge the jeers for much of the day, immediately stopped and
    pointed right at the fan. He called out for security and continued his icy
    stare-down with the fan until an officer arrived. McIlroy strutted up the hill,
    took a few deep breaths, then hit an iron shot right over the flag at No. 8 to
    15 feet.He said some derogatory things that went over the line. I tried to get
    him removed, McIlroy said.?He and Thomas Pieters won the hole to go 3-up
    over?Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson. They ended up winning the match, 3 and 1,
    but the U.S. leads Europe 9?-6?.Afterward, McIlroy said the pro-U.S. crowd
    fueled him.Its a tough environment for us to come and play in, he said. We
    expect that. Its the same for the U.S. guys when they come to play in Europe.
    You have to keep your concentration out there. Its been a long day, and
    sometimes emotions run high.It fueled me a lot. The more they shouted, the
    better we played. I hope they shout at us all day tomorrow.?Two groups farther
    back Saturday afternoon, someone shouted Sergio, you suck! at Sergio Garcia, who
    with Spanish compatriot Rafael Cabrera Bello staged a great comeback to snatch
    an important half-point against Americans Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed. The
    comment led to U.S. vice captain Tom Lehman telling people to calm down.?Police
    in the area work together with event security during the Ryder Cup. The PGA of
    America estimates that some 250,000 people will have attended the entire weeks
    festivities by Sundays end.?On Sunday, the PGA issued a statement saying
    security staff will remove any fans who are disruptive in any way, including the
    use of vulgar or profane language directed at the players.Chaska Police Chief
    Scott Knight told ESPNUK that as of Saturday afternoon, four people had been
    ejected since play started Friday.?They are inappropriate in their heckling,
    their boisterousness and behavior, Knight said. There have been a couple who
    have singled out some players and been over the line in what they are yelling at
    them.I dont know if one of those players was Rory McIlroy. Sergio Garcia was a
    target.?Heated exchanges between fans and players are nothing new to the Ryder
    Cup, especially this week.On Friday, McIlroy attempted to quiet the noise at
    Hazeltine when he?turned to the partisan American crowd and bowed, twice, then
    screamed, Cmon! as he punched the chilly Minnesota air with his fist after
    rolling in a 20-foot eagle putt on No. 16 to finish off Johnson and Matt Kuchar
    in four-ball.?That came after an American four-point sweep in the
    morning.?McIlroy said he wasnt fazed by anything said by the crowd.And Im not
    fazed by anything the U.S. throws at us, he said.Danny Willett, the European
    player and Masters champion,?was heckled and jeered throughout his Ryder Cup
    debut Friday afternoon, a vociferous response from fans at Hazeltine who took
    exception to a crude but humorous essay penned by his brother this week that
    called American golf fans fat, stupid, greedy [and] classless.Information from
    ESPN.coms Bob Harig, ESPNUKs Leo Spall, the Press Association and The Associated
    Press was used in this report.
