Watch: Heckler wins $100 from Justin Rose after making putt

It was during a Ryder Cup practice session when an American heckler was challenged to make a particularly frustrating putt – and won $100 from Justin Rose in the process.

Team Europe’s Rose, McIlroy, Stenson and Sullivan had each struggled to make the shot when a voice from the crowd of onlookers shouted: “I could have made that!”

Feeling in jovial mood, the group of pros invited the American spectator onto the greens and challenged him to make the putt – with Rose putting a very tempting $100 bill on the line as an added incentive.

The crowd were very much behind the heckler and, upon him pulling off the perfect putt, erupted with roars of delight and claps of approval.

However, Team Europe saw the funny side and gave the fan credit where it was due, laughing and hugging the elated heckler as he celebrated in style.
