A woman fell from one of the grandstands at the 16th hole during Friday’s second round of the 2024 WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona.

Tournament organizers did not say where the incident occurred, nor did they reveal how far the fall was or where the woman landed.

‘Today at the WM Phoenix Open, a fan sustained non-life-threatening injuries after a fall at the 16th hole,’ a statement from the PGA Tour said.

‘Scottsdale fire and bike team paramedics reacted quickly at the scene to give the injured fan immediate medical attention then provided safe transport to a local medical center for further evaluation.

‘The WM Phoenix Open works closely with law enforcement, fire and medical organizations and the PGA Tour to strategically place emergency units throughout tournament grounds to promptly address health and safety situations.

‘We will provide additional details if or when appropriate out of respect for medical privacy.’

It is not known what was injured in the fall, nor is it known what condition the woman was in during the time of the accident.

The Phoenix Open has garnered a reputation for being one of the more rowdy, fan-oriented, and boozy events on the PGA Tour – with the 16th hole serving as its centerpiece.

That included one fan who was seen being carried over the shoulders of another man out the front gate of the tournament. 

Elsewhere on the grounds, fans were seen sliding down a mud-covered hill after some stormy weather had passed through this week.

Police eventually came by and shut the sliding down – causing the patrons to boo the officers.
