Pat Perez’ no ‘Fore’ shouts spark anger

Pat Perez Jpeg 1024X661
Pat Perez has faced hefty criticism from fellow pros and viewers after hitting into the crowd on more than one occasion without shouting ‘Fore’.

The American was level par for his third round at the Genesis Open and, on the par-4 12th, his drive flew straight on to the head of a fan on the right-hand side of the fairway.

At the 15th, Perez unleashed another tee shot that hit the leg of a spectator and, with that, left many people – including Shane Lowry – unhappy with his behaviour.

Viewers were also very unimpressed with what they saw from the American, who won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba back in November.
