Watch pro golfer ranked top 70 in world get TACKLED by security guard who mistakes him for a fan as he celebrates | The Sun

ADAM HADWIN was tackled by security while trying to celebrate with fellow Canadian Nick Taylor at the end of the Canadian Open.

A security guard mistook the pro golfer as he ran onto the green on the 18th hole while spraying champagne.

Taylor had just edged out Tommy Fleetwood to earn himself a £1.29million cheque.

And compatriot Hadwin was thrilled for him, but his efforts to soak him in champagne were cut short by an eager guard who mistook him for a fan.

Fortunately, the world No.75 men's golfer was unharmed and saw the funny side as he later tweeted a picture of the tackle with the caption, "Put it in the Louvre!"

He also later congratulated Taylor on Twitter, as he wrote: "Words cannot describe the magnitude of what you just accomplished. So proud of you @ntaylorgolf59!"

Hadwin's wife, Jessica, also saw the funny side of her husband being tackled to the ground.

She tweeted: "Omg I can’t handle these different angles.

"The security guard’s laser focus on his target. Adam’s commitment to the giant bottle of champagne.

"So many things to take in with every new POV."
