Spectator David Johnson heckled members of the Europe team following numerous attempts to hole a putt during a practice round, so Justin Rose challenged the US fan to do better for US$100 ...

“I closed my eyes, hit the putt and it happened to go in,” Johnson said.

“He’s the man of the hour, the day, the week,” Henrik Stenson said. “The boys were struggling with the line so Dave here offered to come out and show us how to do it. And he certainly did; drilled that 12-footer right in the back of the cup.

“Now he can tell the whole world that the European team are the ones that have the most fun.”
