Watch: Club pro hit by apparent Bryson ball

Kenny Pigman, one in all 20 PGA professionals competing alongside the touring professionals at this week’s PGA Championship, was making ready to tee off on Oak Hill Nation Club’s par-4 18th gap on Thursday when he heard somebody yell, “Fore!”

That somebody was apparently Bryson DeChambeau, who from the group behind had simply hit his strategy on the par-4 seventeenth.

One drawback: DeChambeau’s second shot flared out some 40 yards huge and struck Pigman. Fortunately, DeChambeau’s warning allowed Pigman sufficient time to duck, and the ball appeared to narrowly miss Pigman’s head earlier than hitting him within the higher again.

DeChambeau would bogey No. 17, and Pigman bogeyed No. 18 as properly. However DeChambeau bounced again with a birdie at No. 18, making the flip at 1 below, simply two photographs off the lead.

That is the second straight 12 months {that a} competitor was hit by a shot on the PGA. Final 12 months at Southern Hills, Aaron Sensible was hit within the head by a Cam Smith drive. ESPN’s Sage Steele was additionally hit that week in Tulsa, Oklahoma, although she was hospitalized after being hit within the face by a Jon Rahm drive.
