WATCH Ryder Cup heckler drains putt for $100 as Rory McIlroy watches


The American Ryder Cup fans have been giving the visiting Europeans some good-natured heckling during the practice sessions at Hazeltine National. Well, Rory McIlroy and his Euro buddies had enough and decided to put a fan to the test.

McIlroy invited a fan inside the ropes to make a 10-foot putt for $100. And what happened next was Ryder Cup magic.

The fan drains the putt. The crowd goes nuts. He gets props from the Euros he heckled.

I love you, Ryder Cup.
