A day on the course doesn’t go so well for one fan at WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship

You’ve got a great day planned.

You’ll skip work to head out to the Golf Club and Dove Mountain in Marana for the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Heck, you’ll follow around Rory McIlroy in his first-round match against Boo Weekley.

Sounds great.

Until the 15th hole, that is, when McIlroy’s drive missed the fairway and rested up against a rock. The South African tried to salvage a stroke by taking the shot as it lied. Big problem.

McIlroy immediately cringed after hitting the shot, which went into the crowd, forcing one spectator against a cholla cactus. For those reading this who are not desert dwellers, that hurts. A lot.

But on the bright side, even having ten cholla spines embedded in your back beats working, right?
