Tree falls near patrons at 2023 Masters at Augusta National
There was an incident that occurred at Augusta National on Friday that was a scary sight to see. There were some high winds at Augusta National and they were so strong that a tree was knocked down near some patrons.
After one of the golfers just hit a golf ball onto the putting green, the camera panned over quickly to a tree that fell in the vicinity of some of the patrons watching on. Thankfully, ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt reported that none of the patrons by the tree that fell were injured. It was definitely not something you would expect to see at The Masters.
The Masters suspended play during the 2nd round of the event because of the bad weather. The Masters stopped play around 4:22 p.m. ET. Play is expected to resume once the weather clears up.
Brooks Koepka currently leads all golfers with a score of -12 so far. Not too far behind Koepka is Jon Rahm at -9. Former Texas A&M golfer Sam Bennett is currently in third place at -8.
Hopefully the inclement weather doesn’t create anymore scary situations for fans trying to enjoy the festivities.
