Cameron Smith hits PGA Tour pro ON THE HEAD with errant tee shot at US PGA

Cameron Smith accidentally hit fellow PGA Tour pro Aaron Wise on the head with an errant tee shot during the second round of the PGA Championship. 

Smith hit his tee shot on the 2nd hole and he sliced it a long way right of the fairway. His ball was heading for the 7th hole.

The Australian and other members of his group shouted 'FORE', but when Smith got down to his ball, the commentary team in Tulsa revealed what happened.

Smith's ball hit Wise flush on the head without bouncing. According to the commentary team, Wise brushed it off and seemed ok while he was eyeing up his next shot with his yardage book.

@WiseGuyTracker, a Twitter account dedicated to the 25-year-old, posted some images on social media of Wise kneeling down and holding his head next to his caddie.

Luckily, it appears that Wise is ok and continues to play at the PGA Championship. @WiseGuyTracker tweeted that the one-time PGA Tour winner seemed physically well after the accident.

There is no footage as of yet of the ball hitting Wise, however, the footage above shows the drive that Smith hit which caused the collision.




At this stage, the 2022 Players Champion was 3-under-par for the tournament and three shots behind the new second-round leader Justin Thomas. 

As for Wise, the 7th hole was almost the end of his round. He made a par on the 8th and a bogey at the 9th to card a 2-over-par 72. He is 1-over-par for the week and safely in the cut line.
