Condoleeza Rice made history a few months ago when she became the first woman to be allowed membership into Augusta National. Now she’s making news in the golf world for a completely different reasons.
The LA Times has reported that the former secretary of State was golfing at this year’s Pebble Beach pro-am when she hit a wayward shot in the sixth hole on Thursday during the first round. The shot went into another fairway striking a spectator in the face leaving her with a bloody cut which needed medical attention, and she was left with concussion-like symptoms.
Rice went over to the woman (who is anonymous) immediately and had an assistant gather her phone number so she could check on her after the round. It was reported that Rice didn’t fare much better after the dramatic shot gone wrong, and was ‘spraying the ball all over the course’.
Not exactly as difficult as international diplomacy, but Rice has her work cut out for her in the world of golf.
