One bad drive for Mickelson
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WHDH)-- One woman is giving a whole new meaning to being “star struck.”
Sandy Smith was in the crowd at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina when Phil Mickelson hit one bad drive. It went straight “for her” and hit her in the head.
Lucky for Mickelson, Smith is a big fan.
"And I thought 'Oh my god, I think the ball hit me,’” said Smith. “I love Phil Mickelson, he's my favorite player, so if I had to be hit, it's kind of nice to be hit by your favorite player."
Smith received seven staples in her head as well as a nice consolation prize. An autographed glove with the message, “I’m so sorry.”
