Tony Finau was so upset after hitting and injuring a spectator Saturday that he got her information and made sure she was all right.

During his third round of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial Country Club, one of Finau's tee shots went astray and rebounded off of a young woman's head. The impact left her bleeding from her face to her feet, but she only needed stitches in the end.

Finau went to the store, bought flowers, candy and a card, then visited the victim after his round Saturday night. But he still felt bad Sunday morning.

"It was hard for me to regroup mentally," Finau recalled Sunday, via pgatour.com. "I hope I didn’t kill somebody, you know? I just wanted to make sure she was OK for my own piece of mind.

"I wanted to make sure I was on good terms with her and her family and just make sure she knows that I didn’t just hit her and I don’t really care. We’re not out here to hit people. I wanted to make sure she knew that at least I cared."
