Webb Simpson won the 112th US Open in San Francisco on Sunday. The high profile tournament victory was the first “major” championship for the 26-yr-old American. The match ended after 7pm in California, putting the broadcast into prime time on the East Coast. NBC carried the tournament live and golf fans were treated to a rare, unscripted moment during the post-match trophy presentation.
NBC’s Bob Costas was presiding when the hilarity ensued.
