Tiger Woods' tough 2011 season took one more odd turn when a fan flung a hot dog in his direction in the final round of the Frys.com Open.


Woods was preparing to putt at the seventh green at CordeValle - his 16th hole of the day -when the man burst out of the crowd and tossed the hot dog in Woods' direction.

Woods backed away from his putt and the man promptly surrendered to tournament security personnel and police.

"When I looked up, the hot dog was already in the air," said Woods, who regretted missing his subsequent birdie putt but otherwise didn't seem especially concerned. "I guess he wanted to be in the news," said Woods. "And I'm sure he will be."
