Charley Hoffman was bent under a tree with a branch on his back when he laced this one down the side of the fairway and hit Ernie Els’ unsuspecting caddie.

Luckily the ball took a few hops before it hit the caddie. All involved had a good laugh about it afterwards.
Had Hoffman hit his own caddie I’m not sure everyone would be so jovial (that would be a stroke penalty).
