Climate protesters storm 18th hole, vandalize green before huge Scottie Scheffler putt at Travelers Championship

A group of protesters stormed onto the 18th hole of the Travelers Championship with what appeared to be smoke grenades and paint, disrupting the final day of the tournament with Scottie Scheffler attempting to close out another win.

The group of climate protesters were taken off the 18th green in handcuffs as fans at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut booed them and called them names.

The commotion started when one protestor in a blue shirt and golf hat ran onto the course with a cylinder-looking item emanating yellow smoke.

Police officers could be seen immediately chasing after the intruder and the broadcast showed what appeared to be another cylinder-looking item that went flying across the screen with red smoke coming out of it.

Videos posted to social media showed the chaos continuing as several other protesters ran onto the course and authorities quickly took them to the ground to apprehend them.

WROC-TV sports director Thad Brown reported that five protesters were taken away by police and paint was left on the 18th green, where all of the events transpired.
