(CNN)He described it as “one of the worst days” of his life after US Ryder Cup star Brooks Koepka discovered his wayward golf shot caused a woman to lose sight in one eye.
The 28-year-old golfer said he was “heartbroken” and “all messed up inside” when Corine Remande revealed the shot that fractured her right eye socket and caused an “explosion of the eyeball” had left her permanently without vision.
“It’s a tragic accident, I’m heartbroken,” Koepka told reporters Tuesday at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews in Scotland.
