Volunteer Injured By Flying Golf Ball at Bermuda Championship Tournament

TNN can report that a volunteer at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship was taken via ambulance to KEMH with what is believed a head wound after being hit by a golf ball at or near the second hole.

While exact details are currently unavailable it is believed the volunteer was a female and was struck by a wayward shot by an, as yet, unknown participant in the final round of the event.

Further updates have been promised by PGA tournament officials once more is known and relevant parties close to the injured party have been considered and/or contacted.

Play was temporarily suspended at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship due to “inclement weather” at noon for a short period about 20 minutes or so before resuming.

While the exact nature of which form of weather conditions precipitated the stoppage was not specified and there are numerous circumstances that might cause play to be suspended.

High wind gusts combined with persistant rainfall appeared the cause today (Sunday).
