Giving his account of the second incident after completing his third round on the Antrim coast, two-time PGA Tour winner Stanley said: “I hit a ball right on 17 yesterday. You had a hard wind off the left.

“After I hit several people on the tee box yelled “Fore.” My two playing partners, my caddie, a couple of the volunteers or the marshals, even had them signaling it was going right. I mean, everyone to the right of that ball, they knew it was coming.

“So to me it’s kind of a non-issue. I’m not really sure why he decided to make such an issue about it. I know it hit his caddie’s mum’s hand off the bounce, and that’s unfortunate. If it didn’t, I don’t think we’d be talking about it right now.

Stanley , 31, who plays on the PGA Tour in America, first hit a marshal on the shin with a wayward shot at the 14th. Then on the 17th he just stood and watched and did not shout fore when he sprayed it off the tee on the par 4. It was that wild swipe that hit MacIntyre 's caddie Greg Milne's mum, Stepahanie

OPEN golfer Bob MacIntyre had a furious bust-up with Kyle Stanley after he hit his caddie’s mum with a stray shot. Scottish star MacIntyre , 22, has It was that wild swipe that hit MacIntyre ’s caddie Greg Milne’s mum, Stepahanie, and prompted the left-hander from Oban to have a go at his playing partner.

“But, as far as I’m concerned, a number of people yelled “fore.” He made the argument that since I hit the ball that it maybe should have come out of my mouth first. I guess I can see that.

“But it’s unfortunate it ended up the way it did. It certainly wasn’t my intention to put anyone in harm’s way. I had my wife in the gallery, my coaches. So I’m surprised it’s kind of come to this point.”

Asked if he normally shouted ‘Fore’, the former Walker Cup player added: “When, I hit it off line I do.

“But this was a unique situation. You have marshals on the tee signaling where the ball is going. You have guys down there in the landing area. Everyone knew that ball was going right.

“Like I said, it’s a bad deal. But everyone knew the ball was going over there. Like I said, five or six people on the tee yelled “Fore”; my caddie did, my two playing partners, a couple of the marshals. I thought that was enough.”

Bob MacIntyre had some choice words for American Kyle Stanley during the second round of the Open Championship on Friday at Royal Portrush. According to MacIntyre , Stanley failed to yell “ Fore ” after an errant shot and the ball struck his caddie Greg Milne’s mother, Stephanie.

Open Championship rookie Bob MacIntyre lambasted Kyle Stanley , one of his playing partners at Royal Portrush, after the American twice hit people in the crowd in the second round without the traditional warning Bob MacIntyre exchanged angry words with his playing partner, Kyle Stanley .

He also felt that was the case after his caddie quickly shouted ‘Fore’ after the shot that hit the marshal at the 14th hole.

A raging MacIntyre said he’d had “harsh words” with his playing partner after they finished the round. “It wasn’t too pleasant. But you’ve got to tell him it’s not right. He didn’t take it well at all,” said the Oban man.

Replying to that, Stanley said: “I wouldn’t say heated. We talked about it briefly. I was surprised. I was caught off guard that it even came up, really. I just explained to him my side of it.

“And listen, I saw what he said last night. The way things were kind of painted from his perspective wasn’t - he left out quite a few details. I wouldn’t really say that was an accurate description of what happened. They knew the ball was going over there.”

The missing details? “Like I told you, there were probably five, six, seven people on the tee box that yelled “fore.” There are also marshals signaling right. There are marshals down there in the landing area.

Britain blasts Iran seizure of tanker as act of 'state piracy'

Britain blasts Iran seizure of tanker as act of 'state piracy' Britain will seek to put together a European-led maritime protection mission to ensure safe shipping through the Strait of Hormuz after Iran seized a British-flagged vessel in what London said was an act of "state piracy". Iran's Revolutionary Guards seized the Stena Impero in the Strait on Friday. British Royal Marines seized an Iranian tanker off the coast of Gibraltar two weeks ago. "Under international law Iran had no right to obstruct the ship's passage - let alone board her. It was therefore an act of state piracy," Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt told parliament.

Robert MacIntyre was reportedly unhappy with his playing competitor Kyle Stanley for failing to yell fore on two wayward shots. For a player who made the cut in his major-championship debut, Robert MacIntyre wasn’t all smiles Friday at The Open. The 22-year-old Scot was reportedly unhappy with

Kyle Stanley (born November 19, 1987) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. Stanley was born in Gig Harbor, Washington.

“I mean, it was pretty clear to me where the ball was going. I didn’t think I really needed to add to it.

“I mean, it’s not awkward for me. You know, when you talk about somebody playing within the boundaries of etiquette in golf, that’s kind of a touchy situation.

“To paint somebody in a bad light, not playing within the etiquette of the game, you’ve got to be careful when you do that. When you tell your story, you’ve got to make sure you have all the details.

“From what I read last night, he didn’t do that. He’s a young player. I’ve been out here a while. So I don’t feel the need to be schooled on the rules of golf or what to do when you hit a shot off line. So that’s kind of my perspective on it. I don’t know, maybe a good learning experience for all.

“If his issue was with me not being the first person to say “Fore,” I mean, does he have a point? Does he not have a point? That’s up to him.

“ All I know is after I hit the ball it wasn’t but a couple of seconds when several people on the tee box started shouting “Fore.

“I thought that was enough. My intention was to never do anything negative or put anybody in the gallery in harm’s way.

“I always try to be very professional about how I go about things. I don’t think what happened yesterday changes that. It was just an unfortunate situation. Certainly not my intent.”

Players on the PGA Tour have a habit of not shouting ‘Fore’ and MacIntyre was widely applauded on social media for confronting the issue on this occasion.

“For the most part, everyone I play with when there’s a ball off line, there’s an effort to let people know,” insisted Stanley. “I certainly don’t think guys try to, when they hit a ball off line use, the crowd to their advantage, no.”
