Chaska - The Ryder Cup is known for rowdy galleries.

A vocal heckler walked the walk after talking the talk during the practice round on Thursday.

Rory McIlroy and Andy Sullivan took multiple cracks at a 12-foot putt on No. 8 and missed every time.

David Johnson, of Mayville, North Dakota, let them know about it, saying he could make the putt.

Henrik Stenson pulled Johnson from the gallery and Justin Rose laid a $100 bill right next to the ball, daring Johnson to make it.

After wisecracking that the putter he was handed was too short, Johnson muttered, "home soil, right?" Then he drilled home the putt, eliciting a roar from the crowd.

Johnson pumped his arms wildly and earned high fives from the entire Euro foursome as they exited the green.

"Has the Ryder Cup started already?" McIlroy tweeted while linking the video.
