Streaker lit up after crashing 13th hole at Torrey Pines, Connor Murphy

The 2021 US Open had everything in a wild final round, including a streaker at Torrey Pines.

On the 13th hole, where defending champion Bryson DeChambeau was attempting to climb back up the leaderboard, a scantily-clad man stormed onto the fairway with a golf club in hand.

He then dropped a couple of balls, had not one but two hits, and flaunted some dance moves, until finally some security guards began to chase him.

The man bounced an invisible basketball, showing off his handles to one security guard before sprinting away.

But the streaker’s escape was thwarted by another guard on a golf cart, who jumped off the vehicle and hooked him before pinning him to the ground as other guards piled on top.

While the moment was not shown on the official live broadcast of the US Open, footage of the streaker leaked online much to the delight of golf pundits.

“The best streaker golf has really ever seen. Clubs in hand, hit a few shots!” Golf.com writer Sean Zak tweeted.

“Arguably the best swings under pressure today.”

Golf fans online didn’t take long to work out who the barefoot streaker wearing a rainbow flag, boob tube, board shorts and flat cap was – YouTube and Instagram celebrity, Connor Murphy.

With nearly half a million followers on Instagram and 2.4 million subscribers on YouTube, Murphy started out doing fitness videos but has made bizarre stunt videos more recently.

Murphy’s Instagram confirmed he was at the US Open.

It also appeared he was sporting the same outfit seen on the 13th hole worn by the streaker, with Murphy’s post suggesting he was doing another social media stunt.

Spain’s Jon Rahm went on to win the US Open, with a final round of four-under par shooting him up the leaderboard and helping him earn his first major title.
