Spectator Walks Up and Steals Golf Club from Rory McIlroy at Scottish Open

A man walked up and snatched a golf club from Irish pro golfer Rory McIlroy’s bag during the second round of the Scottish Open in North Berwick, Scotland, on July 9.

Video taken by photographer William Smith shows the spectator stroll up to the 10th tee, remove McIlroy’s driver headcover, and grab an iron before casually walking away, leaving the Northern Irishman and his caddie looking over in confusion.

According to reports, the man was immediately escorted from the event by security, the items were returned, and the issue was taken up by Police Scotland. Credit: William Smith via Storyful
