Tiger Woods briefly led The Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Links during Sunday’s final round. The star finished 5-undr par and tied for 6th, three strokes behind his playing partner and the eventual champion, Francesco Molinari.

By the time Woods and Molinari reached the 72nd hole, it was a longshot that Woods would win. But this random yell during his drive on the par-4 18th didn’t exactly make Tiger fans happy.

Woods did not seek out the fan but appeared to look in the direction of the shout. He can be heard saying, “No, what are you doing?”

For what it’s worth, the drive only landed in the first cut of rough to the right of the fairway. Woods stuck his approach from there to about 6 feet.

Still, fans of the golfer complained on Twitter about the spectator’s breach of etiquette, and they didn’t mince words.

Though Woods fell short of winning his first major title in 10 years and 15th of his career, analysts and fans were nonetheless appreciative of his performance and the day’s worth of golf.
