Ryder Cup fan nails 12-foot putt to win $100 from Justin Rose

Fri, Sep 30, 12:50pm by Jake Equid

Have you ever been sitting on the couch or in the stands and said ‘I could do that’ well I know I have. A lucky US golf fan got the chance to back up that very statement when he was plucked from the crowd by Olympic champion Justin Rose during Thursday’s practice round at Hazeltine in Minnesota, before one of the biggest tournament’s in world golf, the Ryder Cup.

An American fan shouted, just as American fans do, that he could make the 12-foot putt that was just missed by Europe’s Andy Sullivan and Rory McIlroy on the eighth green. David Johnson from North Dakota claimed that he could not only make that putt, but a longer putt, from around 20 metres.

Rose and Henrik Stenson, the other two European players in the group, decided to call the man’s bluff and brought him out of the crowd, with Rose even betting him $100 that he would miss.

Sure enough, Johnson stepped up to nail the 12-footer much to the delight of the parochial home crowd. The burly American celebrated in some style fist pumping moments after the typical American ‘get in the hole’ was yelled from the watching gallery.

You must give credit to the burly American fan as he was able to do something that none of his countries professionals were able to do in the last Ryder Cup in 2014 at Gleneagles in Scotland, defeat Justin Rose.

The Ryder Cup itself gets underway tonight at 10:45pm AEST with the first group to tee off America’s Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed versus Europe’s Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose.

Sportsbet has installed the USA as $1.57 favourites with Europe at $3, the tie is at $13 which would mean the European’s hang onto the trophy for the fourth consecutive time.
