Jason Kokrak, who plays in LIV Golf League events, was not best pleased with the treatment Sandy Lyle received at his Masters farewell.
Lyle, 65, was competing for the final time at Augusta National this week, ending a run of 42 appearances at the tradition unlike any other.
The weather has played a huge part in this 87th Masters. Horrifying footage showed three large pines come crashing down on Friday evening.
Thankfully, nobody was hurt. It was around this time the horn blew to suspend play.
Unfortunately for Lyle, he was making his way up No. 18 for the last time with the aforementioned Kokrak and his fellow LIV pro Talor Gooch.
Lyle, the 1988 Masters champion, was facing a 12-foot putt for par at 4.22pm when play was halted.
When play resumed on Saturday morning Lyle two-putted for par to post an 83 in front of barely any patrons.
Kokrak told the media that he had implored Augusta National officials to overlook the suspension of play and let him putt out.
He told Golf:
Lyle wasn't as angry as Kokrak.
He told the media:
The 65-year-old said he then spent the rest of the evening drinking whiskey.
