Guy Choked Out at the Canadian Open

You might be able to get away with spraying champagne and drinks on winners on the LPGA Tour. You can do it on the PGA Tour, too, but if you're a player. If you are some kind of adviser, trainer, or teacher, though, don't bother because this could happen to you.

Chez Reavie won the RBC Canadian Open for his first PGA Tour victory on Sunday. In the celebration, Jim Weathers was coming out to spray champagne on the winner. Then it got ugly.

The only ill fortune to find Reavie came during his celebration, when an overzealous police officer tackled his trainer, Jim Weathers, who was giving Reavie a champagne shower.

"Once he saw (my credentials), he was okay," Weathers said, laughing off the incident.

Stinks for Weathers, but the picture is pretty funny for a golf event. Between that and the guy jumping in the creek at Colonial, it has been a great year for golf photos.
