MacIntyre angry at partner after caddie's mom hit

Kevin Streelman tees off at the 6th at the Open Championship held at Royal Portrush

His drive hit his playing partner's caddie's mom, but Kyle Stanley's refusal to shout "fore" sparked a war of words in the Open at Royal Portrush Friday.

In a story in the Scotsman, Stanley's playing partner, Robert MacIntyre, unloaded on Stanley.

"I hit a 5-wood left out of the rough and my caddie yelled "fore" about a second after it came off the club face", Stanley said about the 14th hole. I found out in the scorer's trailer while we were signing the card after our round.' MacIntyre did not wish to further inflame the row after a 71 on Saturday left him on two under: 'I've done my part, it's the etiquette of the game, I've said my piece, ' he commented The spat has brought to a head a growing feeling in Europe that some Americans are slack when it comes to shouting warnings when they hit an errant shot. He's just standing watching it. The American says that while he didn't shout fore, he felt that with the number of people who did, it was really a nonissue.

"It hit Greg's mum".

"I said I wasn't happy, and I didn't really like the response".

"And coming down the last I wasn't happy with one on 17". It was straight into the crowd. It was in the crowd from the word go. And we expect them to shout "fore".

Of course, we don't know exactly why Stanley didn't yell, but you have to give MacIntyre credit for standing up for his caddie's mom and not being afraid to confront an older, more established player. "My caddie yelled "fore" about a second after it came off the clubface", Stanley said.

Airlines should also enjoy the fact the S1 seating is lighter, meaning less fuel will be required on any aircraft using them. For now, the S1 design is limited to short, domestic flights due to the padding used being insufficient for long haul.

There isn't video of Stanley's drive, so it's hard to say whether the gallery was adequately warned, or if there was a significant delay.

A spectator was struck by a stray ball hit by Brooks Koepka at the Ryder Cup past year and claims she lost the sight in her eye.

Stanley said that he didn't apologize to MacIntyre, nor would he confront him again about the issue. I had my wife in the gallery, my coaches. You know, when you talk about somebody playing within the boundaries of etiquette in golf, that's kind of a touchy situation.

"I saw what he said last night", Stanley said after his third round. You get up there and ask if everybody is OK, and that's what I did.

The European tour addressed this issue back in 2016 with a memo issued to all players entitled - "Fore" Expected Use of Warning.

Stanley accused the lefthander of not telling the entire story. From what I read [Friday] night, he didn't do that. "He's a young player, and I've been out here for a while and don't feel the need to be schooled on the rules of golf and what to do when you hit a shot off line".
