Tiger Woods is one of the greatest golfers of all time. The legend has won 15 major championships in his career and has made many more records. Golfers all around the world look up to Woods as their idol.

The 46-year-old golfer is amazing at his game and hardly hits a bad shot. However, he also gets irritated on the field, like others during the game. And the interesting thing is that it’s not always because of missing a shot, or not playing. Sometimes, the fans are the cause of the golfers’ frustration.

A similar incident took place at the Open Championship once when a fan tried to click a picture of Woods but forgot to put his phone on silent. Unaware, the fan clicked a picture right when Woods was swinging his club and had to stop midway. The fan’s phone made a loud shutter noise and created a distraction for the player.

In reaction to this act by the fan, Woods was seen yelling at him for a moment. Disappointed, Woods turned around to take a deep breath or two. It is well understood that golf is a game that requires great focus. An inch to the left or right, and the ball misses the hole. And for a player like Woods who is well-known for his discipline on the field, this is quite a big problem.
