Man who streaked at Phoenix Open speaks

- It is the video that everyone was talking about a week ago, as a man was seen, on video, streaking across the 17th hole at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

On Monday, just hours after spending five nights in jail, the man, identified as Adam Stalmach, spoke with FOX 10 Phoenix.

In an interview with FOX 10's Ty Brennan, Stalmach, 24, said it was a last minute drunken decision, but a decision he says he doesn't regret.

"Me and my buddy were just walking around and we're like, 'it'd be interesting if someone went streaking', and we figured no one would," said Stalmach.

So, Stalmach said he took it upon himself to do just that, on the crowded 17th hole. The crowd, hoping to watch a day of golf, got a lot more than they bargained for instead.

"I blame it on the alcohol," said Stalmach. "Do I regret it? No. Would I do it again? No."

Stalmach was asked on why he is not regretting his decision.

"I mean, as long as a few people got a kick out of it - if you make people laugh, if you make people smile," said Stalmach.

In addition to being jailed for five days, Stalmach has to pay $1,500 in fines, and attend alcohol classes. Stalmach was asked whether it was embarrassing to have his mother, relatives, and family to see the incident.

"Definitely," Stalmach replied. "I definitely feel bad for my mom. Sorry, mom. I know that sounds really cliche, but I do want to apologize to my mom. She did not enjoy that very much, especially since I was is in jail."

Stalmch was also asked if he is worried about how the incident's potential impact on his future.

"I am somewhat worried, but I'm also hoping that this will push me towards not even having to need a job," said Stalmach. "Trying to take this into the entertainment realm, that'd be awesome, but take it day by day. Take it day by day."
