Fan mulls legal action after Ryder Cup injury


Ryder Cup organizers say they will support “for as long as necessary” the spectator who was hit by a tee shot and has reportedly lost sight in her right eye. The injured spectator, who has been identified as 49-year-old Corine Remande by French press, was hospitaliz­ed after being hit on the head by an errant drive from Brooks Koepka. She has reportedly said she is considerin­g legal action after doctors told her she lost vision in her eye. According to reports in French media, Remande also blamed organizers for the lack of protection on the course and that a course official did not shout when he noticed the ball was headed toward the crowd. The European Tour said it “can confirm that ‘fore’ was shouted several times.”
