No matter what happens Friday-Sunday at the Ryder Cup, it's going to be really hard to find a shining moment brighter than what happened on a practice green Thursday morning.

A random fan, David Johnson, was heckling Team Europe's golfers – specifically Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson – to the point that he was challenged by the pros to make a 10-foot putt.

On the line: $100 if he made it.
