Kiawah Island, South Carolina: For a fan, getting hit by a golf ball at a major tournament certainly hurts, but increasingly that pain is coming with benefits attached.

Last month a British spectator was gifted hotel accommodation by Rory McIlroy after being hit during the British Open. On Friday in the second round of the PGA Championship, a female fan was hit by a drive from Australian Adam Scott — and can now expect a bouquet of flowers from the golfer with probably the most female fans of all.

“Unfortunately I hit a lady on the seventh hole. She was getting some medical attention and I hope she is going to be okay,” Scott told reporters.

The Australian said he had taken the fan’s details and promised: “She will be getting a big bunch of flowers from me.”
