Irish amateur Paul Dunne makes a powerful friend in Andy Lee after idiot shouts 'potato' from the crowd
You come at Paul Dunne, you come at us all
Paul Dunne wasn't quite able to match his heroics of the previous four days in his final round of The Open, but he still did himself and his country proud as he finished at -7 for the tournament.
It was a brilliant performance from the 22-year-old from Greystones and he was treated to rapturous applause from the crowd as he made his way along the 18th fairway – a fitting acknowledgement for his thrilling performances over the weekend.
But as he addressed his second shot on the 18th fairway someone from the crowd shouted 'potato' at the top of his voice.
They should bring back the death penalty for the guy who shouted "Potato" in Keith Lemon's Irish accent after Paul Dunne's drive on 18

Thankfully his attempt at humour was met with no response from those around him, but it caused Dunne to delay his shot and clearly unnerved him as he walked away from the ball to regather his focus..
Watching at home on television Irish boxer was far from impressed with the antics of the punter in the crowd.
I'd like to meet that fella who shouted before Dunne's chip and knock him straight out!

If anyone can help track down the 'wisecracking' spectator we would be more than happy to put him in touch with Andy.
Forget Lee v Saunders this could be the real fight of the year.
