Tiger Woods is chasing Jack Nicklaus’ Major Titles record at 18. Woods right now sits at 14 and looks to win The Open Championship, which started on Thursday, to get to number 15.

Tiger has been known to spray the golf ball here or there and I would say almost once every tournament Woods hits at least one patron. Does it hurt? Probably doesn’t matter because the best part is you get a signed glove from Mr. Woods after getting nailed by his ball.

To me, as long as I didn’t get seriously injured, it’s worth the price of admission to get hit by Tiger’s ball and get a signed glove — and maybe a moment or two of conversation with arguably the greatest golfer of all time.

That is, of course, unless you are the guy standing in the middle of the fairway at The Open Championship on Thursday.

Woods tee’ed off on 17 it looks as if he started the ball on the right side of the fairway and just didn’t fade back. The ball took a hard bounce and bam, right in the face of the patron that was hanging out.

It’s pretty funny to watch, but I bet that hurt. Hopefully he is OK.
