Just days after the sudden and unfortunate passing of European Tour caddie Iain McGregor following an on-course heart attack in Portugal, a cartoon in the Sydney Herald appears to have made fun of the tragedy.

Several tweets were sent on Wednesday morning with a picture of a cartoon attributed to the paper. In the drawing, McGregor is lying on the green of the ninth hole where his heart attack happened, with a player saying to another, "Remember, you have to play it where it lies," referring to McGregor being in the way of the second player's shot.

McGregor, 52, was caddying for Alastair Forsyth on Sunday at the Madeira Islands Open when the heart attack happened on their final hole of the round. After the incident, play was stopped before resuming after a moment of silence, upsetting a number of European Tour players.
