2 men cited after trying to put last name on PGA scoreboard

KIAWAH ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston County Sheriff's Office deputies say two men were cited after they tried to replace the last name of the golfer at the top of the PGA Championship leaderboard with their own on Saturday.

The sheriff's department said around six men were interfering with the scoreboard at The Ocean Course Saturday afternoon as a crowd looked on and cheered. 

Authorities say 43-year-old Christopher Crowley of Pennsylvania, and 33-year-old Andrew Morgan Crowley of Charleston were detained, cited, and released on disorderly conduct charges.

Deputies said the men were putting "Crowley" at the top of the leaderboard next to a score of 7-under par.

Deputies say they approached the men, who then ran from the scoreboard and towards the deputies.

The sheriff's office says one of the deputies ordered the men to stop, but they continued running.  A deputy then drew his gun and ordered the men to drop to the ground.

The pair was escorted off the course.  They are scheduled to appear in court August 20.
