Comedian's snap-hook has woman rolling on ground

  • Print
LUTZ, Fla. -- Actor Bill Murray hooked a tee shot so badly during a Pro-Am event that his ball sailed across a street next to the hole and hit a woman in her front yard.

She was knocked to the ground and had to go to the hospital.

Murray was on No. 9 at the TPC Tampa Bay during the first round of the Outback Pro-Am on Friday when he hit Gail DiMaggio as she was watching the tournament.

He was playing with Hal Sutton, Jeff Sluman and Fred Paglia. They continued while Murray's caddy took him in a cart to the woman's yard, where the paramedics were attending to her.

Murray said DiMaggio was taken to a local hospital.

He joked with reporters that DiMaggio isn't the first spectator he's hit. The 58-year-old comedian is an avid golfer who often plays in celebrity tournaments.
