Sage Steele who is suing ESPN for what she alleges are violations of her right of free speech that caused her to not be able to do certain events is covering the PGA Championship for ESPN.
This would seem to circumvent her own lawsuit, but here we are.
Whatever the case see was hit with a golf ball today and everything with the universe seems to be aligned.
ESPN anchor Sage Steele was struck by a Jon Rahm tee shot and one eyewitness told The Quadrilateral they “saw her on the ground, holding her nose, mouth or chin area” and her hands “covered in blood.” Medical personnel were summoned but the PGA of America was unaware of the incident and deferred to ESPN. A spokesman there also had no comment.
I was standing behind the tee when Rahm hit a hard hook into the left trees. He immediately yelled “Fore Left!” and aggressively waved his arm pointing left. The impact must have been brutal: Rahm’s tee shot ended up in the center of the fairway.
A review of the Featured Group coverage showed nothing abnormal or signs that Rahm or his caddie had any idea someone was injured by the tee shot.
ESPN’s Will Haskett called it a “monumentous break” while on-course reporter Suzy Whaley gave no indication how the ball went from so far into the trees to the fairway center, instead preferring to blather on about Maxwell rolls. Social media accounts suggested Sirius/XM’s Mark Carnevale reported to listeners that Rahm’s tee shot hit “Paige Steele” and later corrected himself.
It looks like she will live, but she has to pay more attention to her surroundings as opposed to telling people she is bi-racial and we should praise her white family (no more praise for her white husband because he left her).
Sage is flying back to Connecticut and won’t be on the coverage for the rest of the weekend. What a shame.
