In a strange incident, a golf ball hit by Rory McIlroy landed on a woman’s lap.

When he teed off on the par three 13th hole, his shot went wayward and into the crowd. When McIlroy arrived to see where the shot had landed, it was quite an unusual place; a woman’s lap.

While the rest of the crowd moved away to give McIlroy space to shoot, the woman stayed put. She laughed as McIlroy approached and pretended to take his second shot before calling for a referee.

After the referee arrived on the scene and told the woman she could get up and join the rest of the crowd, he placed the ball right under the spot beneath her.
