Things are getting heated at the Ryder Cup, as the play and atmosphere Saturday is electric and contentious at Hazeltine. But one moment provided a bit of levity in the morning foursomes session.

Playing in a heavyweight matchup against American stars Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia seemed to be holing every putt he took, so why not a drive? Garcia’s tee shot on the par-4 5th went way left into the gallery and came to rest inside the jacket pocket of a marshal. Garcia walked over to the surprised bystander and shared a laugh with him before playing partner Rafa Cabrera-Bello made the free drop.
