Justin Leonard answers phone on tees
Justin Leonard was preparing to tee off Monday for a practice round at Pinehurst No. 2 when a volunteer's cellphone rang. Instead of getting angry, Leonard took the call himself.
Check out the video here:
It's not known what Justin was explaining to the caller, but I'm guessing it was something along the lines of, "Hi, you've reached Justin Leonard. I can't come to the phone right now because I'm about to hit a tee shot at the U.S. Open. If you'll leave a name and number at the beep, I'll get back to you."
It's bad enough that the poor, embarrassed volunteer's job was holding up a "Quiet, Please" sign to inform the rest of the fans to keep still. But Leonard definitely gets credit for making light of what could have been a difficult situation.
