PLAYERS: Luke Donald
Your browser does not support iframes. Luke Donald accidentally hit a US Open volunteer in the head with a stray tee shot on the 3rd hole of Sunday's final round of the US Open golf tournament. Donald's drive off the tee went way left of the green and hit the standard bearer for the group in front of him, which included Billy Horschel and Jason Day. Fortunately the volunteer appeared to be OK, and Donald apologized and gave her a signed golf glove. Unfortunately, the bad shot was a sign of things to come for Donald, who went on to hit 6-over par on the front nine in his final round.  However, Donald still finished tied for 8th overall and took home a check for $210,000, which isn't too shabby for four days of work.
