Spectator Edwin Curtis left with a painful souvenir from the second round of Honda Classic in Palm Beach after being hit in the head by an errant drive from George McNeill.
Curtis was seated near the 18th green when McNeill's drive struck him on the head, leaving him with a golf ball-shaped welt above his left eye.
The ball bounced back toward the green, allowing McNeil to save par at the par-five hole.
McNeill reportedly shared a joke with Curtis, who did not lose consciousness, and his wife after the incident, handing over a signed glove.
