Luke Donald accidentally sends a shot straight to a volunteers head.

during the third round of the 108th U.S. Open at the Torrey Pines Golf Course (South Course) on June 14, 2008 in San Diego, California.

You gotta keep your head on a swivel when you're at a golf tournament, as you never know quite when a ball's coming your way. A volunteer found this out as Luke Donald sailed one straight into her noggin, part of an absolutely godawful start to the day for the former world No. 1.
The volunteer was OK — Donald gave her a signed glove — but the same can't be said for Luke's game. Donald had flirted with the lead all day Saturday before falling apart in the final two holes, and he's virtually played himself out of the tournament with a six-over front nine.
