Bryson DeChambeau got his Ryder Cup off to the worst possible start by hitting a fan with his first tee shot in the opening fourballs.
As the American’s name was announced spectators waited eagerly to see what he would do on the first hole.
DeChambeau was next after Scottie Scheffler, Tyrrell Hatton, and Jon Rahm.
The 28-year old is known for his long driving and did not disappoint fans. He pulled out the big stick to face the challenge.
DeChambeau gave everything and drove his huge drive down the left-hand side of the course.
Despite his bulked up appearance, DeChambeau kept silent while the ball was in the air, failing to shout the warning word of ‘fore.’
The ball hit a fan’s shin, landing flush, prompting gasps from all around.
According to reports, she did not sustain any serious injuries.

“For me, I’m going to keep providing people with the best entertainment I possibly can, and some people may not like it, some people love it.
“I’m now doing stuff on TikTok and Instagram and YouTube, just going to do things a little different because I want to show people who I actually am.
“I think it’s cool when they get to see behind the scenes a little bit, see what I do during my daily life. It kind of opens it up to: ‘Whoa, this isn’t just this person because of what people think about me out on the golf course, this is actually a human being.’
“It’s not about changing anybody’s perception. I think it’s about getting the crowd behind us and allowing them to, I guess you could say, rile us up to win the Cup.”
Team USA claimed an early lead in the Ryder Cup on Friday, going 3-1 up after the opening rounds of fourballs.
