A caddie working with an amateur golfer collapsed during the second round of the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Friday and needed CPR before being rushed to a nearby hospital, according to ESPN.
Only weeks removed from the frightening incident involving Damar Hamlin during the NFL’s week 17, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen was around when the incident occurred. Though we aren’t certain, Allen isn’t believed to have been on the same course (though the tweet below claims he was), but he was at the tournament and was wearing a hat with the word “Oncore.” Freaky right?
Play was halted for almost an hour on No.11 as the caddie received medical attention, having collapsed on the fairway. Said caddie was working for businessman Geoff Couch at the time but he was not named by the PGA Tour.
According to Tour chief referee Gary Young, a spectator started administering CPR before a Cal Fire officer took over.
Good news eventually reached the course after the caddie was taken to hospital, with players seen hugging each other in relief after it was revealed that he was doing better and was expected to be okay.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
