Rory McIlroy accidentally hit his father with a golf ball yesterday during the first round of the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Course in Georgia. The golf pro, who parred his first four holes and bogeyed the next two holes, hit a spectator on the left leg with an errant shot on the seventh hole. The man turned out to be his own father, Gerry McIlroy. “That was your dad you hit?” his caddie asked as Rory replied: “Yeah!” “I should get an autograph,” Gerry joked after getting hit. McIlroy ended up making his third consecutive bogey on the seventh hole.
