Tempers Flaring-Up Down Under

RSS

Wayne Riley and Brett Ogle of Australia will both come under scrutiny of the European and Australasian Tours in future times, following incidents of poor behavior at this week's Heineken Classic.
 
Riley's problems arose on a Monday night flight from Johannesburg to Perth on South African Airways, when the 38-year-old was said to be acting out in a manner consistent with 'the most violent, ugliest, most rude human being on the earth,' according to a chief passenger of the airline.
 
Ogle's situation stemmed from an on course temper tantrum, when he smashed a tee marker during his Friday round en route to a 76. A fragment of the shattered tee box hit a woman in the face, who immediately complained to a rules official.
 
Both men will meet with tour officials in upcoming days to discuss their actions.
