Tiger attacked with a hot dog while Fowler underlines his potential

A fan who threw a hot dog at Tiger Woods and missed during yesterday's final round of the Frys.com Open in San Martin, California was arrested by local police.

As Woods lined up a 19-foot birdie putt at the par-three seventh hole, his 16th of the day, the man ran onto the edge of the green at Corde Valle Golf Club shouting: "Tiger, Tiger" before hurling the hot dog into the air. The man never got closer than 40 feet to Woods.

He immediately fell to the ground and allowed himself to be arrested. He was then escorted off the course. "I turned around and the hot dog was in the air," Woods said after signing off with a three-under-par 68. "I guess he wanted to be in the news. Looked like he wanted to be arrested really because he laid on the ground, put his hands behind his back and turned his head."

The American Rickie Fowler won his first professional golf title with a six-stroke victory over US Open champion Rory McIlroy in the Korea Open in Cheonan. The long-haired Californian, one of golf's most exciting young prospects, carded a three-under-par 68 in the final round at the Woo Jeong Hills Country Club for a four-day total of 16-under 268.

"It was a lot of fun. I played well early on in the final round and then I was comfortable over the last few holes. Overall, I enjoyed the whole week," said 22-year-old Fowler. World No 3 McIlroy, tied for fourth overnight, clinched second spot with a superb closing round of seven-under 64.

England's Lee Slattery survived a jittery final hole to claim his maiden win on the European Tour at the Madrid Masters.

The 33-year-old from Southport, held a three-stroke lead over Italian Lorenzo Gagli heading up the 18th but put his third shot into the water. He gathered himself again, though, pitching his fifth to within 15 feet and then two-putted for a double bogey to finish on 15 under par, one better than Gagli.
