Six spectators were struck by lightning Saturday at the PGA Tour Championship at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
All were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. According to preliminary reports, none of the injuries put his life in danger, but few details were immediately communicated.
The championship game was delayed by the rain and a horn was issued for the participants to know that they had to clear the course, according to reported information. Some people stayed on the course despite the alarm.
Lightning was near the practice beach around 5 pm, reports said.
The bolt hit a tree near the 15th green / 16th hole and its crack was so loud that the players visibly shook, reported Golf Week.
The match was suspended on Saturday after the fans injured themselves. The end of season tournament will resume Sunday morning.
