Paul Casey is currently prepping for the upcoming Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits. This would be Casey’s fifth Ryder Cup, hoping to make it his fourth win with Europe. Casey is one of the more experienced players who will be playing at the biennial event this time, which will hopefully be a factor for the visitors to take home another win.

The video starts with Casey getting ready for a shot, only to be disturbed by a fan smoking a little too loudly. A visibly irritated Casey turns to look at the fan, saying, “Oye mate, shut it pal. He asked you nicely a minute ago and now I’m asking you. Shut it”.

Another person on the field repeats what Casey had to say, once again asking the fan to stop smoking. This also seemed to be the last warning for the spectator, who would otherwise have been sent out. Towards the end, the smoking sound is not heard again, and Casey finally makes his shot as others clap.
