Scott hits spectator on his way to 75
Despite hitting a female specatator during his second round, Adam Scott is showing the scars of his Royal Lytham and St. Annes demise are slowly healing.
The Australian posted a second round three over par 75 in very blustery conditions and eventually finished the day three shots off the lead in equal 7th alongside fellow Aussie, Aaron Baddeley.

Scott hit a female spectator with an errant shot at the seventh hole he was playing as his 16th. Fortunately, the woman was not injured and Scott obtained her details with the promise of a bunch of flowers.
In fact, hitting the spectator stopped the ball from going into trees.
“She is getting some medical attention so I hope she’s going to be okay,” said Scott.
“And it was a good break for me, because it kicked it just in the rough. It was going right, but it actually kicked it back and away from trees.”
“I hit a 2-iron but I just wanted to make sure she was okay.”
“And luckily enough, there was a doctor standing right next to her who was kind of treating her until the medics got there.”
“So I hope she’s going to be okay. I’ll find out if she’s all right. She seemed to be okay at the time.”
It is the second day running a female spectator has been hit as Rory McIlroy hit a woman on the right hip at the 17th hole on day one of the 94th PGA.
