The RBC Canadian Open came to a wild finish on Sunday when Nick Taylor sank a 72-foot putt to defeat Tommy Fleetwood in a four-hole playoff, the longest putt of his career on the longest playoff.
Taylor was also the first Canadian to win the country’s national title since 1954, prompting a rowdy celebration both on the green between Taylor and his caddy and among the spectators.
There was also a group of fellow competitors wearing street clothes watching after their rounds finished to see how the exciting finale would turn out.

For Adam Hadwin, a fellow Canadian, his excitement boiled over when he ran across the green to shower Taylor with what appeared to be a bottle of champagne.
While his intentions were pure, security thought otherwise.
The video shows that Hadwin was not recognized by security, who were prepared for a possible situation like this. He was brought down to the grass and surrounded by more security personnel as Taylor and his caddy continued to celebrate.

“Gutted for Tommy but what a way to win your national open! Crazy scenes! Praying for Adam Hadwin what a tackle,” tweeted British golfer Tyrrell Hatton, who finished at 16 under in third place just behind Taylor and Fleetwood, tweeted Sunday.
Security appeared to recognize Hadwin after he was tackled to the ground, as a separate video showed them quickly lifting him off the green and allowing him to celebrate with Taylor.
But Hadwin’s celebration was justified as the Canadian Open feels like the US Open to Canadian golfers, and it’s a very special moment when a compatriot wins it all.
It all started when Taylor and Fleetwood were locked at 17-under for the tournament after their final round on Sunday, forcing a tiebreaker. Both returned to the 18th tee to tee off, but no one expected three more holes to follow after that.
Both players had a chance to birdie the par-5 as they came up to the 18th green, and Fleetwood buried the putt to put pressure on Taylor, who took a closer look at the hole. Smooth and firm, he hit it to force another trip back to 18.
On this trip, both players shot for par, leading them to the 9th hole for a tough par 3. Once again, both players made pair.

It wasn’t until the fourth hole of the playoffs that Taylor was on the green for an eagle shot, but he was 72 feet from the hole. The chances of sinking the putt for the win were minuscule.
Taylor defied the odds and sank the 72-foot snake, prompting immediate cheer between him and his caddy. The rest of the crowd followed suit, and unfortunately Hadwin paid a small price for wanting to celebrate as well.
