Golf protest charges.
Paul Michael Addison, 40, of Newcastle, and Stephen Fletcher, 35, of Sunderland, were both charged with five counts of criminal damage after duck eggs filled with purple gloss paint were thrown on to the grass of the Royal Liverpool Golf Course, at Hoylake, as winner Tiger Woods was preparing to chip on to the green.
The pressure group Real Fathers 4 Justice, a splinter group of the original Fathers 4 Justice group, claimed responsibility.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: "We have charged two men in connection with the incident and they have been bailed."
The two are to appear at Wirral magistrates' court.
