Jordan Spieth just did a victory lap, and one fan got a little too excited… pic.twitter.com/XUAOdfAG3Y

The Open Championship, for the second straight year, gave us a tournament for the ages, with Jordan Spieth holding off the always dangerous Matt Kuchar for his third major title. After Spieth’s victory lap around Royal Birkdale, an eager fan was trying to give Spieth a five or handshake but failed in the attempt.
The man tripped, knocked the fence down, and face planted onto all of that history sitting in the Birkdale grass. The man is OK, so it’s all good in the hood.
Certainly, though, it must have been embarrassing. But hey, he got a little fame out of it, as the tweet by Alex Meyers of Golf Digest almost broke Twitter.
Let this be a lesson though. Sports is supposed to be exciting, but let’s learn to keep that excitement tamed. Otherwise, you could hurt yourself, others…..fences, the ground, etc.
And please don’t trip and fall on purpose. You will not go viral.
