Merseyside Police said photos of the buggy appeared on social media, sparking an arrest
An 11-year-old girl has become the youngest golfer to qualify for the US Women's Open after winning her qualifier in California.
The British golfer said he was targeting "the haters" and "girly boy trolls" after becoming tired of incessant abusive messages on Twitter.
Huge congratulations to Rory McIlroy on winning the Open.
Northern Ireland golfer Rory McIlroy has posted a picture of himself holding the Claret Jug after winning the British Open.
Rory McIlroy said he felt "absolutely incredible" after wining the British Open but that his success "still hadn't sunk in yet."
The 25-year-old told a press conference he would be celebrating tonight with his friends and family. "I'll get to enjoy it and let it sink in tonight," he said.
Rory McIlroy held off a spirited challenge from Ryder Cup team-mate Sergio Garcia to claim his third major title on a thrilling final day of the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.
McIlroy took a six-shot lead over Rickie Fowler into the last round and was seven clear of Garcia, but saw that advantage cut to just two strokes as Garcia played the first 10 holes in five under par. However, the 34-year-old Spaniard - fifth here in 2006 and now with 19 top-10s in 64 majors - crucially bogeyed the 15th to release some of the pressure and McIlroy would not be denied becoming the first European player to win three different majors since the Masters was founded in 1934.
Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy captured his third major after winning the British Open by two shots at Royal Liverpool on Sunday. The 25-year-old held off the challenge provided by a red-hot Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler to record a 17-under-par total of 271.
Police have charged a 44-year-old man who allegedly collided with a security guard after driving a golf buggy out of the well-known golf Open at Hoylake.
Jason Holland, of Grange View, Prenton, Merseyside, has been charged with aggravated unauthorised taking of a vehicle and common assault.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: "We can confirm that a man has been charged following an incident in Hoylake, Wednesday, 16 July.
"He is due to appear before Wirral Magistrates on Friday, 5 September."
Golf star Rory McIlroy has broken off his engagement with tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, he announced today.
The Northern Irish golfer and former world number one said the relationship ended after he realised he was not ready for marriage.
"There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people," McIlroy said.
He added: "The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn't ready for all that marriage entails.
"I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we've had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting."
The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews may be in for a drastic change as the men-only institution votes on the issue of admitting women.
Held as the spiritual home of golf, St Andrews has come under increasing fire for excluding women members but things could finally change in September when the club's 2,500 members will decide whether to open its doors to all after 260 years.
The Royal and Ancient Golf Club has traditionally been the guardian of the rules of the game since 1754, although since 2004 it devolved responsibility for the administration of the game and the Open championship to the newly-formed The R&A.
Last year the R&A was criticised for choosing Muirfield, which has a male-only membership policy, to host the Open championship with Scoland's First Minister Alex Salmond refusing to attend.
