SILVIS, Illinois -- Police say they have identified the woman responsible for the loud firework heard at the John Deere Classic over the weekend.

Professional golfer Zach Johnson nearly jumped off the 16th green when Jennifer Winters set it off. Police say they believe the noisemaker was a firework, as opposed to an air cannon.

Silvis police say Winters of Rock Island, Illinois needs to appear in court for disorderly conduct.

Johnson said he's forgiven Winters for the incident.
