Spectator Hit by Wayward Golf Ball at Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

A woman was injured when she was hit by a wayward shot from defending champion Tyrrell Hatton on day one of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The spectator was seen bleeding from a head wound after the incident on the 15th hole at Kingsbarns Golf Club.

The woman was treated on the course by paramedics before being taken by buggy to the medical centre on site.

It comes less than a week after a woman suffered a serious eye injury after a ball struck her at the Ryder Cup.

The wayward tee shot from American Brooks Koepka occurred during the opening session at Le Golf National.

Corine Remande, from Egypt, was hit on the par-four sixth hole in Paris and told the BBC that she has lost the sight in her right eye.
