We can only hope the infestation doesn't spread further.

I'll never understand why people think it is amusing to disrupt an event other's paid money to see.

First, the PGA Tour player wouldn't have to; there's plenty of security at these events. A few years ago, a criminal tried to run from the police and ran through a tournament - I think it was in Florida?

Second, attacking a spectator would be a problem; defending oneself from someone committing a crime wouldn't be.

Third, there are plenty of more recent examples of problems for people trying to disrupt sporting events. A few years ago, a fan tried to disrupt a Cleveland Browns game and got sacked by James Harrison for his trouble (and no, Mr. Harrison wasn't fined for this). Here's a rather entertaining video of the event:

Just in the off chance you're not trolling and are actually considering doing this: the prank you're describing is illegal, and carrying a firearm onto the golf course for the event is a felony, even with your alleged permit; this assumes you even get it in (I went through a metal detector at the last event I went to).

Furthermore, drawing your weapon wouldn't be justified, at least from a legal point of view: once you commit a crime, actions related to it can't fall into "self defense." So, if you did somehow get the gun in and used it defensively after being attacked, you're looking at at least attempted murder charges; same reason if a drug purchase goes bad, the buyer can't shoot the dealer in self defense (even if he or she isn't the one starting the violence in the latter case).

Riot?  No.  Detain the punk using whatever level of force is appropriate to do so?  Absolutely.

 

But again......13 year-olds don't get to carry firearms any more than they're allowed unaccompanied to the tournament in the first place.  We're right back to your dad whipping your ass.

 

In the very unlikely event that you're not actually 13, let's play this through though....

 

.....you're committing a crime by interfering with the professional golfer.  By pulling your firearm to prevent capture in the commission of that crime, in the state of Florida you have now committed a felony with a MINIMUM MANDATORY sentence of 10 years in prison.  Bump that min/man to 20 years if the firearm is discharged, whether anyone is hurt or not.

 

Alright, I'm done feeding the troll, whatever his age.

Yep.

 

Like Kurt Russell said in my favorite movie Tombstone "No need to go heels to get the bulge on a tub like you".

 

A tackle like Jacobson had in the Open would be enough to do the job.

Premise is flawed.  Tiger Woods wouldn't be in the fairway.

I had more respect for you when I thought you were a troll.

 

I'm not sure what a "straigut face is", but you are right. Sadly, the player would be fined and suspended.

 

Now do me a favor. Go in the other room and ask your Mommy or Daddy what would happen at their workplace if a bunch a##holes came in and started screwing with the employees while they were trying to earn their living.

I have to ask a naive question... we're all being trolled by the O.P., correct?

Matt Chatham did that in the 2008 Superbowl to a naked streaker.  He decked the guy ass over tea kettle.  It was hilarious.  Better than any half time show.

I thought firearms were banned at PGA events?

Not sure if it's a PGA thing, or specific to each tournament, but every one I've been to expressly prohibits weapons of any kind (firearms, knives, ...nunchucks)
