An overly excited fan made headlines over the weekend when he tossed his hot dog wrapped in a crusty bun at Tiger Woods as the pro golfer putted his final round at the Frys.com Open at CordeValle in San Martin, just down the street from Stanford.
"When I looked up, the hot dog was already in the air," Woods said with a chuckle. "He was pretty far away from me."
Fortunately, it wasn't a chili dog. Even more fortunately, nobody was hurt by the hurling meat.
It was a 31-year-old Santa Rosa man who reportedly ducked under the rope with the hot dog in his hand and starting yelling "Tiger," while running toward the golfer. After the meat-slinger tossed the dog, he fell to the ground where he was arrested for disturbing the peace.
The man, who told police he had only had one drink and was not drunk, later told deputies that the hot dog has just flown out of his hand -- he had never intended on tossing it at Woods.
"I guess he wanted to be in the news," Woods said. "And I'm sure he will be."
