'Idiot' fan runs onto 13th hole, hits balls and gets tackled by security

As if the final day of the U.S. Open wasn't wild enough, on the 13th hole at Torrey Pines a fan got in on the action.

A fan - or a knucklehead, rather - ran onto the course, reached into his pocket, dropped a ball and took a swing with an iron. He danced around, took another swing and then made a break from security before they eventually detained him.

Since fans have returned to sporting events as COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted around the country, there have been a slew of unsportsmanlike conduct amongst fans - especially in the NBA and MLB. Now golf can be added to the list.
