Wayne Riley & Brett Ogle in trouble

Australian golfers Wayne Riley and Brett Ogle face disciplinary action for bringing the game into disrepute after separate incidents last week.

Riley's behaviour on a flight from Johannesburg to Perth led to the former Scottish Open champion being described by a South African Airways officer as "the most violent, ugliest, most rude human being on the earth."

A detailed report from the airline will be discussed during a meeting in Sydney between 38-year-old, London-based Riley and officials of both the
Australasian and European tours.

Trevor Herden, director of Australasian tour operations, said: "This is obviously a serious issue and Wayne will be asked to explain."

Meanwhile, 36-year-old Ogle, who combines playing golf with television commentary work, is also in trouble after lashing out at a tee marker during
his opening 76 at the Heineken Classic in Perth.

The marker shattered and a woman spectator was grazed under her left eye when she was hit by a flying fragment. It was her first visit to a golf tournament
and she immediately complained to officials.
