Tiger Woods is on the rally to close out the opening round of the 2014 Open Championship. After a bogey-bogey start, Woods has come back to 3 under par on the round through 16 holes.
Woods’ drive on the par-4 17th, however, wasn’t his best effort of the day. It slipped to the right and, as a drive is wont to do in links golf conditions, it bounced hard off the ground. After that first bounce, the ball rebounded off a spectator’s face.
The bad news is that the drive hit the spectator in the face, who immediately turned away from the ball like he had just been slapped. The good news is that Tiger’s drive didn’t go further to the right thanks to that guy’s face.
