Aaron Wise luckily avoided injury after being hit in the HEAD by a failed Cameron Smith drive while playing the seventh hole

AARON WISE was fortunate to avoid serious injury after being hit in the HEAD by an unpredictable ball at the PGA Championship.

Cameron Smith wouldn’t have been feeling too smart driving wide of the mark in Southern Hills.

And the Aussie’s sliced ​​shot came down and caught his fellow golfer squarely on the noggin.

Wise was on the seventh hole, bending down to assess his ball that had drifted wide of the fairway into the rough.

Smith, meanwhile, tees off on the adjacent second, which runs parallel.

The world No. 4 repeatedly shouted ‘in front’ but Wise didn’t hear it.

Then the ball suddenly bounced off the right side of his head, leaving an imprint on his white cap.

Wise took a moment to regain his composure and somehow still managed to make par on the seventh as he paced around the course with a water bottle and then an ice pack on his head.

The 25-year-old American said: “I was surprised my ball wasn’t in the fairway and next thing it’s ringing in my head a bit.

“I was down the fairway. But you know, that happened for maybe 20 seconds and after that I was pretty normal.”

“Of course there is a lot of adrenaline in the body after something like that.

“So I’m really just trying to calm down and feel somewhat normal for the last few holes.”

Wise – who hit a 72 in the second round to get one-over for the tournament – added he was feeling “good” but “a little sore”.

His playing partner Joel Dahmen described the moment of shock as “a grazing shot”.

He added: “Luckily, he’s fine. All viewers heard it. It was loud.

“He was definitely shaken when he got into the next shot, sure.

“It was so far away and there are so many people and the wind is blowing.

“You won’t be able to hear if someone says ahead.

“I don’t blame Cam for that at all. A hundred people could have shouted to the front and you wouldn’t have heard.”

Wise’s unlucky moment came a day after Tiger Woods narrowly avoided another stray ball.
