A "cheater" banner flew overhead as Tiger Woods tanked on the golf course Thursday during the 115th U.S. Open amidst fan condemnation.

Us Weekly referred to the banner as getting "Bobby Flay’ed," in reference to a “cheater” banner that was flown overhead during Flay’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony in early June.

But despite the undoubted distraction of the banner, it was Woods’ dismal golf game that drew the most attention.

The Big Lead announced after watching Woods’s struggle on the course, “Tiger Woods’ opening round 80 at the U.S. Open was horrific, although not unexpected. How bad exactly was Woods’ round? Well, 15-year-old Cole Hammer finished his opening round at seven-over, and is just one of 17 amateurs to finish ahead of the 14-time major champion.”



Social media attacked the former top golfing star, holding little back:







Woods wasn’t the only pro golfer turning in a bad game on Thursday. Rickie Fowler, who won the Players’ Championship, was 11 over to Woods’ 10 over.
