Des Smyth had a poor day on the greens as he carded a one-over par 72 to trail Larry Nelson by seven shots in the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am in Florida.
Making just his second appearance of the season on the Champions Tour after losing his full playing rights last season, the Laytown and Bettystown man had 32 putts at TPC Tampa Bay near Lutz.
Smyth had four birdies and five bogeys but the big talking point of the day was Caddyshack star Bill Murray, who hooked a tee shot so badly on the ninth that the ball sailed across a street and hit a woman in her front yard.
Gail DiMaggio was knocked to the ground and had to go to the hospital
"I wasn't sure I was in bounds or not," Murray said. "And I saw this NBC golf cart coming at me and he said, 'I hate to be the one to tell you this but you hit a lady. She's down on the ground.' That is, you know, sobering."
Murray said DiMaggio was taken to a local hospital.
"She was overjoyed when she saw me because she said she had come out to see me and her husband had just said, 'I hope he hits it over here,' " said Murray, who did not finish his round.
After signing his scorecard he joked with reporters that DiMaggio isn't the first spectator he's hit.
