Twitter users have accused PGA Tour rookie Kristoffer Ventura of spitting on the ball of one of his Safeway Open opponents, former NFL star Tony Romo.
Romo, who spent 14 seasons as the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, is a scratch golfer and was given a sponsor’s invite to play in the third event of the PGA Tour season at Silverado this week.
He appeared to justify it, too, when he opened with a two-under 70 to sit just five shots off the lead after the first round. However, a second round 78 saw him miss the cut.
That, though, wasn’t the big talking point after his round.
WATCH – MASTER YOUR SHORT GAME
Romo striped a 3-wood almost 280 yards from the middle of the fairway on the par-5 16th, his ball finally coming to rest just five feet from the hole.
The trouble was that the group in front was still on the green… and they didn’t appear to be best pleased with Romo hitting into them.
Norwegian ace Ventura seemed to be particularly unhappy and, according to some Twitter users, spat on Romo’s ball, after knocking in his own putt.
Did he or didn’t he? Judge for yourself…
If you ask us, the video – broadcast on Golf Channel and first reported by Golf Digest – is pretty inconclusive. Isn’t it possible that he’s just looking to see if he has left a spikemark in Romo’s line?
Some people disagree…
