Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy found themselves in an interesting predicament on the second hole during Friday's foursomes match against Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker, after McIlroy's tee shot on the par-3 landed within a couple inches of a sprinkler head.
McDowell assessed the situation and asked for relief, likely expecting that his request would be granted. But Jim Furyk didn't see it as an open and shut case and spent the next few minutes debating the ruling.
Even though McDowell was denied relief, a fan took it upon himself to school the duo from Northern Ireland on how to handle the situation in the future, yelling "Hit a better tee shot next time."
Ah, you have to love Chicagoans. Needless to say, this likely won't be the last you'll hear from one of the fans in the gallery this week.
