Tiger Woods Gets Attacked by Hot Dog

In the past few years, we've all heard numerous Tiger Woods wiener jokes. In fact, The Somewhere in Augusta sports bar has a special Tiger Woods Homewrecker hot dog (it's a foot-long, in case you were wondering).

But at the Frys.com Open yesterday, a man threw a hot dog at Woods as he was lining up a putt on the seventh green at CordeValle in San Martin, California.

The attacker ran onto the field, shouting "Tiger, Tiger", before hurling a hot dog at the golfer. He then laid down on the green with his hands behind his back, which made is easier for security to arrest him.

In a post-game interview, Tiger said Some guy just came running on the green, and he had a hot dog, and evidently ... I don't know how he tried to throw it, but I was kind of focusing on my putt when he started yelling."

Hmmm, maybe the guy served Tiger at a hot dog recently and was stiffed out of a tip. In any event, watch the hot dog toss here (courtesy of The Mirror and NBC):
