Corine Remande is considering legal action after she said she had been blinded in one eye when hit by a ball at the Ryder Cup

What happened? 49-year-old golf fan Corine Remande says she has lost the sight in one eye after she was hit by a golf ball at the Ryder Cup last Friday. US Open champion Brooks Koepka’s tee shot veered left into a group of spectators at the sixth hole and Remande was hit in her right eye. She has claimed there was no warning given, while officials have stated there were several shouts of “fore”. Remande received first-aid on the spot and was taken to a specialist eye hospital in Paris but says she has been told she won’t regain her sight.
