So what exactly happened with that heckler on Rory's 16th hole? #TheOpen

So what exactly happened with that heckler on Rory's 16th hole? #TheOpen

HOYLAKE, England (AP) -- Rory McIlroy's most important tee shot was on the par-5 16th, and it was his best of the day. He hit it down the middle, leaving him an iron into the green for a two-putt birdie that restored his lead to three shots with two to play. Most peculiar was his reaction. McIlroy turned and glared into the gallery, pointing to someone with the end of his driver. Moments later, the BBC showed police escorting a fan off the property. "He was giving me grief all day, actually," McIlroy said. "And I sort of put with it for the first 15 holes, and then he deliberately coughed on my downswing on the 16th tee. I still hit a great drive. But I heard it halfway down and I knew who it was. So I turned around and got him chucked out, thankfully. "I don't know who it was," he said. "But I didn't have him bothering me for the last two holes, which was nice."
