Woman Hospitalised After Wayward Koepka Drive At Ryder Cup

A woman suffered injuries on day one at the Ryder Cup after being hit in the face by a wayward drive from Brooks Koepka.

The three-time major champion hit one offline on the 6th hole and it struck the woman just above her eye.

She fell to the ground and was covered in a coat whilst staff placed bandages around her injury.

Koepka was visibly shaken after the incident and gave the lady a signed glove.
