The final round of the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines is not lacking in drama, as there’s been a lot of movement at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
There was some extracurricular drama, too.
Earlier this hour, a male streaker ran onto the course at Torrey Pines and attempted to hit a couple of shots from the fairway. The man reportedly made his way past security and onto the 13th fairway, managing to get a swing off.
The man then attempted to evade security, before ultimately getting tackled and taken down, presumably into arrest.
A streaker — who took a swing with a club toward the canyon — just got lit up by a police officer in the 13th fairway. Sadly, linebacker Bryson did not get involved.

Perhaps the streaker will ultimately break some of the tension in the final round on Sunday evening. It’s been a pretty rough hour-plus for most of the contenders, as several leading golfers have dropped several shots due to bad play.
Louis Oosthuizen is currently leading the U.S Open at -5 through 11 holes. He’s one stroke up on Jon Rahm, who’s at -4 through 13 holes. Harris English is done for the day at -3, while Bryson DeChambeau is through 12 holes at -3.
