VIDEO: Harris English's Errant Tee Shot

Have you ever played any of those Tiger Woods golf games? If so, have you ever hit a spectator in the gallery? We all have, right? When they fall to the ground, it's the funniest thing ever. Well, it's not so funny when it happens in real life. Harris English is a rookie on the PGA Tour, with a win on the Nationwide Tour as an amateur to his credit. English had been playing well in the first two rounds of the 2012 Players Championship, entering Saturday's final round at seven-under par for the tournament, just one shot off the lead. But when English stepped to the first tee box, he drove a shot that smacked a volunteer right in the head. The poor guy immediately crumpled to the ground just like in the video game. It's another classic example of art imitating life.

Here's the video of the incident:
