A litter bin behind the first tee exploded slightly injuring one woman at the World Series of Golf tournament in Akron, Ohio yesterday. It was not immediately clear what caused the explosion.

Vicky Miller, of Fairlawn Heights, said her chest was bruised by an unidentified object following the blast.

"There was a little boom and some smoke," Mrs Miller, whose husband is a member at Firestone Country Club, said. "We scooted away and then boom, everything was orange and there was some more smoke."

A softball-sized chunk of waxy material waste of the explosion, and parts of the trash container were scattered around the area, which was roped off by officials.
