Lost: The sight in her right eye, Corine Remande, 49, who was hit in the face by a wayward Brooks Koepka drive Friday at the Ryder Cup, Agence France-Presse reported. Koepka pulled his tee shot on the par-4 sixth hole during a morning four-balls match at Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France. The ball hit Remande, who was in the gallery. Koepka gave a bloodied Remande an autographed glove and offered his apology. She was treated at the scene and then hospitalized in Lyon, near her parents’ home, reportedly with a fractured eye socket. According to a statement from a Ryder Cup spokesperson, “We are hugely sympathetic and will do everything we can to support the spectator, insofar as that is possible under very difficult circumstances.” According to AFP, Remande, 49, had traveled from Egypt with her husband to the Ryder Cup.

Selected: As host site for the 2020 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship, Quail Creek Country Club in Naples, Fla. The dates will be April 25-29. Quail Creek had been the original site of the 2017 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur, which was relocated to Champions Golf Club in Houston because of extensive flooding in Naples from Hurricane Irma.
