One of the rare sports in which fans are permitted on the playing field is golf. They must exercise caution because the golf ball can cause significant injury. The same thing happened recently in the 2022 Genesis Invitational, held at Riviera Country Club. Jon Rahm’s tee shot injured a fan, and he was forced to lie down in agony.
The Genesis Invitational, hosted by Tiger Woods, is one of the most prestigious events on the PGA Tour. Furthermore, they play it on one of the most challenging courses globally, with tough and fast greens to boot. As a result, players may make an erroneous shot out of frustration, which can be extremely dangerous for onlookers. So, let us look at this occurrence that occurred during the recent second round of the 2022 Genesis Invitational tournament.

Jon Rahm hits a spectator at the 2022 Genesis Invitational

Having a difficult start to his second round, Rahm was two over for the day after just five holes of the day’s play. And when he stood on the par-3 sixth hole with an iron in his hand, supporters were hoping for a comeback birdie from the defending champion. A large number of people gathered near the greens to watch Rahm.
However, the world’s number one golfer hit an errant tee shot that landed in the area where the spectators were standing, injuring one of them. Although it was unclear where the ball had struck, the man collapsed and showed signs of discomfort.
Jon Rahm had a terrible day, finishing with a score of +2 for the day and even par for the tournament. As a result, Rahm’s prospects of finishing in the top 5 are slim heading into the weekend. Aside from that, Joaquin Neiman holds a two-stroke lead over Cameron Young with a score of -16 in the first round of the tournament.
