Florida: PGA Tour`s Honda Classic has already seen its fair share of bizarre events with Rory McIlroy walking off because of wisdom tooth pain, but tennis star Serena Williams may have trumped that.
Excited to see golf star Tiger Woods teeing off, Serena tried to take a cheeky photograph of the controversial sports star with her mobile. As per the PGA Tour`s rules, spectators aren`t allowed to take pics or videos of players on days of play, but the recently re-crowned world number 1 women`s tennis player was unaware of that law.
"Apparently you can`t take pictures of golfers," she later tweeted, "In my defense peeps always take pics of tennis players."
She was promptly told off by a tournament official, who pulled Williams`s phone down as she was about to snap the pic.
She also tweeted that the official "yelled" at her during the episode: "Just saw @tigerwoods. I understand NO golf. Apparently u can`t take pics. This security for mad and yelled at me. (sic)"
She did, though, go on to tweet a picture of the golfer as he was teeing off, but it remains unclea whether she took the pic herself. Double fault Serena?
