Tiger Woods has appeared to loosen up on the golf course in recent years, being more playful with his opponents and the gallery.

Earlier this month, an awesome video of Woods and his playing partner, Kevin Na, went viral on social media. It was pretty great.

Woods' caddie, meanwhile, doesn't appear to be as loose and playful.

Joe LaCava, the caddie for the 43-year-old golfer ripped a fan's hat off of his head during one of Woods' shot attempts this morning.

Golf.com had more on the circumstances leading up to Woods' shot:

Early in his second round match against Patrick Cantlay, Woods sent his approach into the par-5 6th sailing wide left of the green into a large pack of spectators. The ball finished on a hump in some trampled down grass, setting up a tricky chip for the 14-time major champion.

As if the shot wasn’t difficult enough, fans surrounded Tiger as he and LaCava decided what to do. As Tiger addressed the ball to make his chip, the spectators raised their phones to document the moment, a common sight on the PGA Tour these days. Most of the amateur videographers remained silent and rightly avoided causing any disruptions that could mess Tiger up.

One older gentleman, however, proved he needs to brush up on his tournament golf etiquette.

The fan appeared to recognize his mistake immediately, at least, putting his hands up as to say "I'm sorry."

Woods ended up having a rough hole, too, as his chip fell short of the green and he ended up dropping the hole to his opponent, Patrick Cantlay.
