Ben Crane pushed Rory Sabbatini to unheard of actions
This "almost rivalry" had almost nothing to do with scores or wins and losses.
But it had plenty to do with what happened on the golf course.
While playing in the Booz Allen Classic in 2005, the pairing was put on the clock.
Both players caught up by the 17th hole and were off the clock. When Sabbatini hit his approach into the water, he walked behind the green and prepared to make his drop before Crane could hit his approach shot.
Sabbatini was almost directly behind the flag and stood there waiting for Crane to play. As soon as Crane's ball stopped moving, Sabbatini dropped, played his chip, walked onto the green, marked his ball and then put his ball down and putted it.
He then walked to the 18th tee before Crane finished. He was booed and booed again as he approached the 18th green (where Crane birdied from 50 feet away, and Sabbatini managed to two-putt).
