Tour Pro shouts at spectator during Houston Open

Scottie Scheffler had an incredible year on the Korn Ferry Tour, winning the Nationwide Children's Hopsital Championship back in August and finishing top of the rankings as the Korn Ferry Tour's Player of the Year.

After topping the rankings at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, Scheffler was given a fully-exempt PGA Tour card which he has been using to play in the new PGA Tour season.

Scheffler got off to a great start, finishing T7 at the Greenbrier Classic and followed that up with a T16 at the Sanderson Farms Classic. The hot form slowed down a little when Scheffler finished T74 in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and the 23-year-old was looking to bounce back at last week's Houston Open.

The young American was playing his last hole on Friday, the par-3 ninth, where Scheffler was dangerously close to the cut line and needed at least a par to make it into the weekend.

While on camera, Scheffler seemed to lose control of his right foot during his swing, sending the ball a little lower and thinner than he had hoped. As the camera's attention switched to following his ball, Scheffler could be heard in the background shouting at a spectator.

"Are you kidding me?" said Scheffler, "You can't keep your mouth quiet for five minutes, man? Right in the middle of my swing."

Scheffler went on to get up-and-down from the bunker to make the cut and finished T28 for the tournament, but watch the incident in the clip below:
