Golf fan hit and left bloodied by Brooks Koepka’s ball during 2018 Ryder Cup
He’s one of the biggest hitters on the PGA tour and the female fan required medical attention as she was left bloodied by the American’s wayward tee shot
A female fan at the Ryder Cup needed medical attention when she was struck by Brooks Koepka’s wayward tee shot.
The American – known as one of the biggest hitters on the PGA tour – was attempting a huge drive on the sixth hole when his ball floored her.
Rich Beem, on-course commentator for Sky Sports, said Koepka was clearly shaken up.
The 28-year-old rushed over to check on her and spent several minutes talking with the medical staff before rejoining the match. He was pictured signing his glove and handing it over as a way of apologising.
Kopkea, who won the PGA Championship and US Open earlier this year, started Friday playing alongside Tony Finau against Europe’s Justin Rose and Jon Rahm as America attempt to defend the title won at Hazeltine in 2016.
