American Stanley, 31, was accused by Scot Robert MacIntyre of endangering the crowd by not shouting the conventional shout after hitting a quirky shot in the gallery at the 17th who hit a woman's hand after bouncing.

The 22-year-old MacIntyre was upset by several incidents involving the two-time PGA Tour winner during their second round – and told him that

"There are a few things that I am not today was happy with it, "MacIntyre told reporters on Friday.

"And when I was the last, I was not happy with one in 17.

" Playing partner does not shout in front. "The ball goes in the crowd. We shout like it in the crowd and he is just looking at it. People don't have enough time to respond after we shout. It touches Greg, my caddie's mother. I think it's okay, but it's not what you want. And so I told them what it was like. "

MacIntyre, who also played with the Englishman Andrew Johnston, said about his admonition Stanley" didn't do so well. "

" nice, but you have to tell them, "he added.

Stanley claims that "different" people, including MacIntyre, Johnston, are caddy and marshals shouted and signaled that things were going well, so "everyone knew" where the ball was going

"To me it's a kind of non-issue, I don't really know why he decided to go there & # 39; n problem, "he told reporters waiting to interrogate him after his third round of Saturday.

"As far as I'm concerned, a number of people shouted & # 39; forward & # 39; he argued that since I hit the ball, it should have come out of my mouth first and I think I can It is a pity that it eventually ends like this. It was certainly not my intention to endanger someone. I had my wife in the gallery, my coaches. I am surprised that it came to that. "

Stanley insists that he usually calls "before", but says that it is a "unique" situation with marshals signaling and marshalls in the landing area. idiosyncratic shot on the 14th and relied on shouting his caddy.

The American denied the exchange with MacIntyre became ill tempered.

"I wouldn't say heated, we talked about it briefly," he said. "I was a little surprised that it actually even came up.

" Listen, I saw what he said, the way things were painted from his perspective left a lot of details. They knew the ball went there. "

Stanley claims that he asked everyone in the crowd if he hit someone when he reached his ball." That's the first thing you do and that's what I did, but no one told me I hit anyone, "he said. The first time he heard he had hit someone, was afterwards in the scorers trailer.

He said he had nothing to apologize about and added to:

"When you talk about the limits of golf etiquette, it is a bit of a tricky situation

" To play someone in a bad light who is not in the etiquette of the game "You have to be careful when you do that," he said.

"When you tell your story, make sure you have all the details and what I have read that he didn't do that last night.

" He is a young player and I I have been here for a while, I do not feel that I should be educated in the laws of golf. "

" I hard a har win the gthe left afte I hit several people from the tee box ytelled for my two playing oatrenrs

He did not like it at all. That ball went straight into the cfrowd. Just shout, easy like that.

Whimsical shots are a professional risk in golf, but there has been growing anger in recent years that professionals on the PGA Tour and the European Tour do not "scream" enough

Brooks Koepka was hit by a stray ball last year at the Ryder Cup and lost sight in her eye.
