Comedian and Chicago Cubs fan Bill Murray told The Quad-City Times on July 8 that St. Louis Cardinals fans are "Satan's messengers on earth."

Bill Murray does not like St. Louis Cardinals fans at all. 

In fact, Murray even gave them a unique label during a conversation with The Quad-City Times' Don Doxsie at the John Deere Classic Pro-am at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill. on July 8.

"Satan's messengers on earth," Murray told a woman in the crowd who's a Cardinals fan. "And it turns out your team is cheaters, too." 

Moments later, Murray signed an autograph for a boy who wore a Cardinals hat. After Murray gave his autograph, he noticed the cap, per The Quad-City Times. 

"Are you a Cardinals fan?" Murray asked the boy. "Get out of here. Rotten kid."

Murray's tee shot on the second hole went into a tall patch of grass. He asked all the kids nearby to help him look for it. Murray joined the search, rummaging through the grassy portion of the course but to no avail, per Doxsie. 

As soon as Murray left the area, several fans found three balls but were unsure which was his. 

When Murray made his way to the third hole, he asked Charmaine Moscoso of Walcott, Ill. to sit on his lap while he rode the golf cart, per The Quad-City Times.

"I just asked if I could get a picture with him," a startled Moscoso told Doxsie. "He said to hop on his lap, and I said, 'Well, OK.' I can't believe I rode on Bill Murray's lap." 

After the third hole, a couple approached Murray. Doxsie says couple then gave Murray a t-shirt with a photo of the woman and the comedian taken several years ago. The shirt also bore the date "May 27, 2017" as a reference to the couple's wedding date and an invitation for Murray.

On the 12th hole, he pulled his cousin Cathy Hughes from the crowd and asked her to hit for him. When the shot sailed off course, he pointed at the ball as a sign for Hughes to go get it, per Doxsie. 

When Murray reached the 17th fairway, he went to a nearby concession stand and took bottles of water from a bin and gave them to the crowd, per The Quad-City Times.

Murray saved one of his best antics of the day for last. 

When he saw a John Deere tractor near the 18th-hold green, he interrupted amateur golfer John Lagemann's putt, per Doxsie. Murray said, "Just a second, John. Which one of you knuckleheads drove his lawn mower out here?"

Murray then signed more autographs as he finished playing. 

At the end of the day, another amateur golfer, Jason Luebbe, told The Quad-City Times how much he admires Murray:

"He was just unbelievable. Funny, serious, everything in between...

"Just the way he interacts with the crowd is just unbelievable, and the way they reacted to him was great, too. It was just a great day."

Three years ago, Murray threw the opening pitch for the Cubs' home opener against the Washington Nationals at Wrigley Field. Murray rounded the bases and then slid into home plate before he threw the cremonial first pitch, per The Chicago Tribune's Fred Mitchell.

Murray explained to Mitchell why he did what he did:

"I knew I wanted to slide because I knew he (Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood) was going to try to put the tag on me. I don't know if that was a true slide. It wasn't really a pop-up slide. I was thinking about a pop-up slide. 

"I wasn't able to perform the pop-up slide. I wasn't even able to keep the hat on my head. And it might not have been a slide, it may have been a collapse.

"I wasn't over-prepared, I'll tell you that."
