A woman was hit in the head with a golf ball Friday while watching the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing.

Marc Lieshman, trying to play from off the right side of the ninth fairway by taking over a section of bleachers, instead hit his ball into the stands, striking the woman.

The woman seemed to be OK, although her condition was not immediately known. She was alert, talking and in a good mood.

After it happened, Leishman gave her his glove.
