Condoleezza Rice Hit Spectator In Head During First Round Of Pebble Beach Pro-Am
Celebrity

Condoleezza Rice is certainly a much better politician than golf player. The former Secretary of State hit a spectator in the head Thursday at Pebble Beach on the first day of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

On the sixth hole, Rice connected on a powerful stroke…launching the ball out of the grass, and hitting a spectator standing behind the rope.

“Did I hit you?” Rice asked, quickly reaching the woman, whose nose was gushing blood.

“It was a bad shot. I’m really sorry.”

Rice knelt beside the woman and held her hand until first-aid arrived. Before continuing her game, Rice asked the woman’s daughter to call her with an update on her mother’s condition.
