Condoleezza Rice Beaned A Lady At The Pebble Beach Pro-Am

A day in the life of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who is competing in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am:

In the week after learning he was paired with Condoleezza Rice in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Jason Bohn compiled questions and contemplated how to greet someone who had served as national security adviser and secretary of state. When he finally met Rice on Thursday morning, less than a half-hour before their tee time, her first words to him, he said, were, "Roll Tide."


Ah. Tell me more:

Rice combined with Jason Bohn to shoot a 2-under 70 on the day but it was her approach shot on the sixth hole that caught everyone's attention. Everyone, that is, except one woman in the gallery. Rice's approach shot drilled the unidentified woman square in the forehead, leading to much blood...and confusion.

Yikes. How was the rest of the day?

"We didn't talk about it. We tried not to," said Rice's caddie, Kathryn Imrie, the assistant women's golf coach at Stanford, where Rice teaches and often mentors and helps recruit student-athletes.


So...that's how things are going for former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Thus far at Pebble Beach, Chris Berman has gotten stuck in a sand trap, Phil Mickelson has fallen on some rocks, and Condoleezza Rice has been disturbed into silence by the violence she did against an innocent bystander. It's the best golf tournament ever.
