A golf fan hits the deck and is left bleeding after Adam Scott’s tee shot at The Open.
Christopher Inneson, 34, revealed on Twitter that he had received a gift and note from the Australian star following the incident in Liverpool on Thursday.
Inson – a chef and brewery owner – is unable to duck out of the way despite huge shouts of ‘go ahead’ as Scott’s drive from the 18th hole heads into the crowd.
The ball hit him on the head, causing him to fall to the ground. She said she was so shocked she didn’t recognize Scott, 43, when she went to apologize to him.
‘It was the 18th drive, full toss, it didn’t bounce,’ he told the Telegraph.

Everyone ducks when I shout ‘front’. I saw my mate duck and then it hit me in the back of the head.’
Inneson’s friend, Rob Tufnell, added: ‘It sounded like a golf ball hitting the mud or a playing doe.’
The fan-favourite Scot presented him with a signed glove which read: ‘Sorry mate’. Ineson had a 3 cm scar on the back of his head.
He said: ‘It was a real shock. This was supposed to be our day. We both love golf but my partner is more of a golfer than me, even though I go to the range.
‘We followed [Tommy] All the way around Fleetwood. We were close for 17 holes and then came to the 18th, we were deciding who to follow next, probably Rory, and the next thing I knew I was lying on the ground.
‘Obviously, you try to stand first but I had about three hands on my head, ‘Just stay there’.’
He continued: ‘I saw the medics and I had to lie on a buggy and be wheeled the whole course which is incredibly embarrassing.

‘No concussion. It’s very painful, but you have to be incredibly unlucky to be seriously injured.’
Of his meeting with Scott, Inneson added: ‘I didn’t know who he was – I just saw a tall guy asking if I was OK and just handed me the glove. It was a nice touch.’
Scott finished the day at one over, tied for 48th.
