    Anyone else notice the person that forcefully grabbed Phil's shoulder/neck as he got swarmed approaching the last hole, and then got taken down by security? I saw it up close while watching live...

    Anyone else notice the person that forcefully grabbed Phil's shoulder/neck as he got swarmed approaching the last hole, and then got taken down by security? I saw it up close while watching live on TV, but it was unfortunately never replayed. I can't find any more info on it, and I also can't find any footage that shows it as clearly or close as it was shown on whatever channel my parents were watching it on. This is the best footage I have found, but it's kinda hard to tell for sure what happened amid the chaos from that far away:

        Brooks Koepka says injured knee 'dinged' by swarming crowd at PGA

        Brooks Koepka says injured knee 'dinged' by swarming crowd at PGA

        “I'm not happy,” Koepka said. “I don't know if there's a right word I can say on here without getting fined, but it hurts a little bit.”

        That wasn’t the only thing hurting. As Mickelson and Koepka fought their way through a swarming crowd that had pushed passed security and formed a massive mob in the 18th fairway and around the final green, Koepka said his surgically repaired right knee got “dinged a few times” by people in the crowd.

        “No one really gave a s---, personally,” said Koepka, who added that his caddie, Ricky Elliot, got “drilled in the face.”

        “I don't think anybody really understands,” he continued, “There's five people kind of standing by your knee, you get a little skittish. Like I don't mind waiting or being in that crowd but getting my -- I don't know, it felt like somebody tried to, I don't know what the deal was, but it's what it is. Be putting it in ice today. It feels like s--- right now.”
