Streaker takes over PGA tournament

THE first day of play at this year's Phoenix Open event was held up by a drunk streaker breakdancing on the course.

American stars John Rahm and Jordan Spieth head the list of top players taking part in the $8.5 million tournament at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona.

But the Pro-AM curtain-raiser to kick off the competition was brought to a dramatic halt when a naked reveller stormed the fairway.

Twenty-four-year-old Adam Stalmach dashed around the 17th hole with nothing left to the imagination to the amusement of the crowd.

Lapping up the attention the spectator then started to before breakdancing moves on the fairway.

He then decided to lark about in one of the bunkers protecting the 17th green, before showing off his golf skills with his own practice swings.

Clearly struggling to deal with the amount of alcohol he had apparently consumed, Stalmach then proceeded to collapse onto the grass as he attempted to walk around.

After falling over several times he was finally accosted by the event stewards who had appeared relaxed about the surprise performer.

Play was stopped for around five minutes before the streaker was led away, to a standing ovation and cheers from the watching crowd, some of whom threw golf balls at him.

Stalmach was then arrested by police at the course, and now faces charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.

"Stalmach showed signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication," said Sgt. Ben Hoster, a spokesman for Scottsdale police.
