When marshals attack: Justin Rose hit in the head with “QUIET PLEASE" sign

It was a positive performance from Justin Rose at last week’s BMW Championship, with a final round 64 at Conway Farms. However, things weren’t all ‘Rosy’ for Justin after the Englishman was forced to overcome an unexpected blow to the head from an unlikely source: a marshal.

For those who aren’t sure, marshals are the people who stand on the tee box at PGA Tour events. They have two main jobs – holding up “QUIET PLEASE” signs and making sure fans aren’t moving about while players take their shot. They also alert fans as to which direction the tee shot is heading along the fairways.

But one marshal got a little carried away by the occasion. As Rose sent a left-sided drive down the fairway, the marshal got really into waving his sign in that direction. And, well, this happened:

Go on, watch it again. You know you want to.

Of course Justin Rose wasn’t hurt in the incident so we can laugh about it. In fact, he didn’t even flinch. And I bet you were thinking nothing could compare to the marshal who tried silencing a passing train for Tiger Woods at Chambers Bay during the 2015 US Open:

It’s a close call.
