A SPECTATOR at the Centurion Golf Club had a nasty surprise when a stray tee-shot sent him flying to the ground.

American World No 327 Peter Uihlein was left with his hand on his head after striking a fan with his wayward tee shot.

Peter Uihlein was left visibly concerned after striking the spectator

The 32-year-old is part of the rebel Saudi-backed LIV Golf series, who have now persuaded Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Reed and Rickie Fowler to sign up for the next event in Portland.

But in St Albans, Uilhein hooked a tee shot way left, and his cries of “Fore” were not heard by those at the side of the fairway.

The ball sailed through the air and directly smacked into one unlucky fan, who dramatically fell to the ground.

Despite what appeared to be a painful looking injury, those around the unlucky spectator did not appear very sympathetic.

One even jokingly KICKED the man s he lay motionless on the ground.

Uihlein was visibly concerned as he stood with his hand on his head, but fortunately the stricken fan seemed to be joking around.

He quickly got back up to his feet and was spotted dishing out high-fives after being whacked by the ball.

And an apologetic Uihlein kindly sought out the spectator after the incident and gifted him a signed glove in a kind gesture.

The pair shook hands and shared a warm embrace as Uihlein apologised for striking him with his wayward shot.

But all social media users were left talking about was the sly kick up the backside from the stricken fan’s unsympathetic friend.

One wrote: “Why does his mate kick him?”

Another said: “The guy who kicks him to the side is a true hero.”

While a third joked: “Does that guy kick him at the end to make sure he’s alive?”

The PGA Tour have dished out suspensions to 17 golfers taking part in the controversial series.
