First-round play at the KLM Open in the Netherlands was suspended for two hours on Thursday after a player was reportedly struck in the head by an errant tee shot.

Fabrizio Zanotti was on the 16th hole at Kennemer Golf & Country Club, the seventh hole of his round, when he was apparently struck in the head by a drive from a parallel hole. That drive may belong to Alexandre Kaleka from the 14th hole. Zanotti was knocked unconscious with medical personnel attending to a nasty wound. Playing partner Hennie Otto delivered basic medical attention before professionals arrived, according to Golf by Tour Miss and golffile.ie.
