To the delight of 99% of golf fans around the world, Webb Simpson's caddie Paul Tesori unloaded on a heckler after he overheard some choice comments after his boss played his approach into the par-5 18th.
Simpson and Tesori endured a disappointing third round on Sunday, with Simpson tumbling down the leaderboard with a 76.
With frustrations already high - having started the round in the lead on 11-under par - Tesori overheard some ill-timed comments and went over to the beer-fumed spectactor.
One Twitter user captured the exchange:

TV analyst Roger Maltbie reported that the heckler had been sarcastically yelling at Simpson about what a “great day” he was having. Instead it was the heckler’s day that took a turn for the worse. Tesori called for a police officer and appeared to request the spectator’s ejection.
Tesori received plenty of support on social media afterwards from golf fans panning the heckler’s behavior. Simpson will begin the final round at six under par, seven shots off the lead. You can see a selection of the feedback below.
Love it. Spectator heckles Webb Simpson, so Paul Tesori walks over to the gallery ropes and reduces the guy to just shaking his head and staring at his feet. Didn’t seem like he wanted to say much once the caddie addressed the situation.— Jason Sobel (@JasonSobelTAN) September 2, 2018
