AVONDALE, La. – David Lipsky was already having an eventful week in New Orleans before he and teammate Aaron Rai opened with an 11-under 61 at the Zurich Classic.
Lipsky, who added six birdies and an eagle to his team’s total on Day 1 at TPC Louisiana, was involved in a multiple-vehicle car crash on Tuesday on his way to the golf course.
“I'm fine,” Lipsky said. “I was driving here on Tuesday morning, and there was a car right in front of me that had broke down, so I started changing lanes, and the guy behind me, I guess, wasn't paying attention and slammed on the brakes and smoked me.”
