When golfer Jordan Spieth played in the pro-am at the RBC Heritage, he was hoping his luck would go better than it did at Augusta last Sunday. Little did Spieth know he would be hit by a golf ball in the leg, by one of his playing partners. It happened when he least expected it.

Spieth was midway through his round at the Harbour Town Golf links, when he was hit in the left leg by one of the guys in his group. It wasn’t as bad as it sounds, and Spieth was still scheduled to tee off in the event Thursday at 12:40 Am.

The good news is, he doesn’t have to play with any amateurs and he should be able to feel safe walking the fairways on this Pete Dye design.

The Heritage is one of the PGA Tour events the pros enjoy after a hectic week at Augusta. Spieth should be able to enjoy the course and his round not worrying about taking one for the team so to speak.

The 20-year-old was able to shake off the errant shoot and finish the pro-am. When Spieth tees off, he will be in a group that features former winners of the event. Davis Love III and Tom Watson will be in his group. Love III has won the Heritage 5 times and Watson, who is 64-years-old has won at Harbour Town twice.

    Several years ago Assassin Golf was started at Harbourtown when Billy Andrade’s amatuer partner hit him not once, but twice and also hit a marshall. Billy Andrade uttered the phrase “Assassin Golf” and it was born.
