Watch: Streaker Steals The Show At Phoenix Pro-Am

Not something that you tend to see happening all that frequently anymore, streaking tends to take the seriousness out of everything.

Although the Waste Management Phoenix Open already seems pretty unconcerned with how it is perceived to begin with.

While the infamous incident took place a few days ago now, Jordan Spieth was subjected to another few members of the riled up Arizona crowd.

On the final hole of the day yesterday, Spieth faced a make or break 30ft putt for birdie. Looking set to miss his first cut in eight months, the Texan was reportedly furious when an excited fan shouted out, "Jordan, I've got two beers on this!"

Leaving the resultant putt short, Spieth was not shy in letting his anger toward the heckler be known.

Earlier on in the round, another fan had also shouted out the more ambiguous "Tater tots" as Spieth was in the middle of a downswing.

Although Spieth did not speak in the wake of either incident, another player who was similarly targeted throughout was Rickie Fowler, who, unlike Spieth, currently shares a tie for lead.

Fowler expressed his disappointment after finishing up:

I was a little disappointed in some of the stuff that was said. That girl just yelled right in Jordan's downswing ... there's just no place for that.

This year's tournament may be best remembered however for that aforementioned streaker.

Unlike your more common football pitch streaker, stewards didn't appear as on the ball to stop the fun of this energetic young man.

Parading around the 17th, looking almost amazed that he was still out there as long as he did, the offender eventually just handed himself over to the authorities.
