RYDER CUP

Now, this is what we call a Ryder Cup pressure putt.


After loudly and proudly declaring that he could make a putt that Rory McIlroy and Andy Sullivan had continually missed during today’s final Ryder Cup practice round, an American heckler was brought onto the sixth green by Open champion Henrik Stenson to prove that he could, indeed, walk the walk.

And just to crank up the intimidation factor, the fourth member of the fourball, former US Open champion Justin Rose, popped a fresh $100 bill next to the brave chap, identified by reporters on-site as David Johnson from North Dakota.

The challenge was simple: make the putt, in front of some of the world’s top players and hundreds of his fellow spectators, and the cash would be his.

Rory filmed what happened next and – well, just watch:

Fair play to the guy. If you’re going to run your mouth off, you better be able to back it up.

And that celebration… a solid 10/10. Almost Keegan Bradley-esque, below.
