A golf fan had to spend a day in the hospital with a bloody head injury over the weekend … and that’s all because the Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama could not keep a drive straight.
Here’s the deal … Matsuyama competed in the Shriners Children’s Open in 2021 in Las Vegas in 2021 – when on the 16th hole in his second round on Friday he screwed a drive that went just right.
You can see footage of the shot, it was so far from the fairway that it accidentally landed in a fan’s noggin-knocked guy to the ground.
Robert, tells the tab that was hit TMZ Sports he was a bloody mess after the ball drilled him … and felt “weird” and “totally disoriented.”
I was standing next to this guy when he was hit in the head by Matsuyama’s 300 yard drive. He took it like a master! Hideki signed a hat and glove for him. The guy told Hideki not to worry about it and to continue playing golf. The doctors arrived shortly after. pic.twitter.com/QxY6NS2cLG
Robert says that while he was trying to recover, Matsuyama was kind enough to sign an autograph for him and apologize – but the injury was so bad that Robert was eventually taken to the hospital.
Robert tells us that he needed 6 stitches to close the wound and you can see in the pictures of the aftermath – it was all cruel.
Robert – who says PGA Tour officials have not contacted him about the incident – has since started one GoFundMe to help with his medical bills and thought it might cost him in the $ 15,000 range.
He is expected to recover completely.
As for Matsuyama — who won the Masters in April — he finished the tournament in Vegas with 67th place with a score of 4 under.
