Graeme McDowell speaks out about gallery noise

Posted at 1:32 PM by Samantha Glover | Categories: Graeme McDowell

UPDATE: Look closely at McDowell's left hand at 0:17 in Golfwerkz.com's video to see the gesture he makes while calling a spectator a wanker.

After a spectator at Tiger Woods's World Challenge caused a stir by calling Keegan Bradley a cheater, tournament winner Graeme McDowell spoke out against boorish fan behavior. Here are the highlights of his post-round press conference:

And let's hope there's not too much more of that going on out there. I'm kind of fed up with all this "mashed potatoes" and all this rubbish that the crowd are kind of enjoying shouting right now.

Keegan had a guy out there who was after every shot he was yabba dabba doing and it was just stupid. It's something for the players, it's not a lot of fun and it's kind of becoming a little bit of a cool thing to do for the spectators. It kind of gives them their two or three seconds of fame. But it gets a little frustrating for everyone.

Thanks to the media attention focused on Bradley, McDowell didn't catch much heat Sunday for calling a spectator a "wanker" during his round. Still, the Irishman took to twitter to apologize.
