PGA of America Apologizes For Lack Of Crowd Control At PGA Championship

The end of the PGA Championship produced a surreal scene with a swarm of fans surrounding Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka as they approached the green on the final hole of the tournament.

Everyone was eager to be front and center for Mickelson’s heroic moment, which led to the golfers being engulfed by the crowd.

Koepka was even annoyed with the fans who “dinged” his injured knee.

Now, PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh is issuing an apology for the lack of crowd control down the final stretch.

“While we welcome enthusiastic fan engagement, we regret that a moment of high elation and pent-up emotion by spectators on the 18th hole during the conclusion of yesterday’s historic PGA Championship briefly overwhelmed security and made two players and their caddies feel vulnerable,” Waugh said in a statement.

“We always put player safety at the top of our list and are grateful that order was restored. I have spoken to both players and apologized on behalf of the Association.”

Luckily order was restored and play was not interrupted. And in the end, we were treated to a historic moment with the 50-year-old Mickelson becoming the oldest to ever win the PGA Championship.
