Bryson DeChambeau hits PGA Professional Kenny Pigman with wayward tee shot at 2023 PGA Championship
It’s been a busy morning at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, for the opening round of the 2023 PGA Championship.
We’ve seen hole-outs, near aces and a lot of high scores.
And we’ve also seen a player in the field get hit by another player’s drive thanks to Bryson DeChambeau.
PGA Professional Kenny Pigman was over his ball, ready to hit a tee shot on the par-4 18th — his ninth of the day — when DeChambeau’s wild tee shot hit him.
Pigman, who grabbed his shoulder but seemed to brush it off quickly, went on to bogey the hole. DeChambeau was even par through his first eight holes.
