Patron OK after getting hit by ball

A patron from Florida was hit by a ball on a shot at hole No. 8 today during his first trip to Augusta National Golf Club.

The man, identified by his friends as "Travis," was hit near the right temple by a José María Olazábal shot at No. 8. The patron was taken to a nearby first aid station to get medical assistance. The man was knocked down from the ball.

After getting hit, the man received an autographed glove and ball from Olazábal, who won the Masters back in 1994 and 1999.
