Tough way to watch some golf at a major. Jason Blue, a fan minding his own business, just watching the first round of The Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St. Annes in England, became a little famous today after he got nailed in the dome by Rory McIlroy.
And it wasn’t just one of those where the ball took a couple bounces and kind of hit him. No, Blue got shellacked and dropped as the ball was screaming down from the sky. Just check out the bandages wrapped around his head in that picture. No doubt he was seeing stars. McIlroy was nice enough, signing a glove for Blue with “Sorry!’ and his name.
Looks like Blue turned out okay, so there is that. McIlroy took a double bogey on the hole, which had to hurt.
