Rory McIlroy Hits Spectator, Who Falls Into Cactus


In the opening round of the World Golf Championships – Accenture Match Play Championship, Rory McIlroy tried to punch out from the desert at the par-4 15th hole but ended up hitting a nearby spectator who fell into a cactus.

McIlroy is no stranger to hitting fans, he once hit a fan with a drive at the 2012 British Open.

I don’t feel bad for this fan.  That ball was clearly in a tough spot, so standing within 5 feet of the ball is just plain stupid.  He’s lucky that those jumping cholla cactus didn’t end up on his face…or junk.
