(Newser) – US Golfer John Daly smashed a snap-happy fan's camera during a tough opening round in the Australian Open, the Sydney Morning Herald reports. After pushing his tee shot on the 9th hole into a clump of trees, the enraged duffer grabbed the camera as the fan tried to take a photo and hurled it into a tree. Tournament organizers say the fan breached regulations by bringing the camera, and Daly won't face any sanctions.
