Sunday's U.S. Open in La Jolla
, saw a golf
fan play in the big leagues.
He wasn't invited, though.
The intruder, who was dressed in shorts, a crop top, and a rainbow-colored cape, ran onto the course, took two shots (with what appeared to be a well-practiced swing), danced briefly, and dodged security
personnel before being tackled by one in a golf cart.
He was arrested, a representative from the United States
Golf Association told Stardia on Monday, without going into further detail.
