Ryder Cup heckler who made $100 putt shows up on ‘Late Show’ with Stephen Colbert

The Ryder Cup heckler who was pulled inside the ropes to make a $100 putt with Rory McIlroy and the Europeans watching is milking all of his 15 minutes of fame. He was around all weekend at Hazeltine National, taking pictures and signing autographs. Then he showed up in New York City on Monday night to appear on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

David Johnson was part of a bit where Colbert was answering audience questions, as he usually does ahead of a taping. That's when a planted audience member asks about the putt Johnson made, and Colbert shows the footage. Then, Johnson starts heckling Colbert, yelling at him to start the show. Then Colbert recognizes Johnson, brings him on stage and the crew brings out a putt for Johnson to make: a gimme mini-golf 19th hole putt up a mock of Donald Trump's tongue and into his mouth.

Colbert sets the stage for the bit by saying he'll put Mr. Lincoln -- a $5 bill -- on the line.



And then the celebration ensues.
