SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Webb Simpson showed the poise of a champion — even during the trophy presentation for his U.S. Open title.
A fan dressed in a Union Jack knit cap crowed like a bird and jumped in front of the cameras during Sunday's ceremony, then was pulled away and flung to the ground by USGA executive director Mike Davis.
Simpson did not allow the odd scene at The Olympic Club to spoil the greatest moment of his career. He laughed, then cracked: "Enjoy the jail cell, pal."
Afterward, Simpson said he thought the craziness might be part of the script.
There was no immediate information on the squawker.
