Ah, those Canadian golfers!

[quote]As Nick Taylor’s winding 72-foot eagle putt dropped into the cup, bedlam ensued.

As Toronto’s Oakdale Golf and Country club crowd erupted, their home hero had just enough time to raise his fist in victory before he was wrapped up in a hug by caddie Dave Markle.

Overhead, champagne rained down on the pair, sprayed enthusiastically by fellow pro and compatriot Adam Hadwin. Then, abruptly, it stopped.

A security guard, appearing to mistake Hadwin for an invading member of the gallery, skirted around Taylor to take down the bottle-wielding golfer, driving him to the floor of the 18th green with a linebacker-esque tackle.

Hadwin clearly saw the funny side.

Confirmation of Hadwin’s clean bill of health – and an apology – followed later from his wife Jessica via Twitter.

“I’m thrilled to report that @ahadwingolf is still among the land of the living and in true Canadian form, apologized to the security guard for being tackled,” she said.
