We recently explained how Jesper Parnevik accidentally ran into Gene Sauers’ caddie when crossing a bridge during the PGA Tour Champions’ Chubb Classic presented by SERVPRO at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida.
The incident took place on Friday, when Parnevik accidentally sent caddie Billy Poore tumbling, scuffing up his left leg.
“I knocked his caddie off the bridge with my golf cart,” Parnevik said. “He even has the tire tracks on his (right) leg.”
Sauers was, of course, concerned for Poore’s well-being, but after finding out he was OK, was instantly worried about whether his clubs were damaged.
Our network partners from the Naples Daily News provided a photo of Poore with a scrape down his leg and a bandage covering the area just above his ankle.
Sauers said he was concerned when he heard it happening behind him — and after he found out Poore was going to be OK — whether his clubs had been damaged at all. But they had not. And Sauers promptly went and birdied the hole.
Sauers finished alone in eighth for the tournament, five shots behind champion Steve Stricker, and made a cool $51,200 in the process.
