The Ryder Cup threatens a legal sequel. The 49-year-old Corine Remande, who was hit on the first day after a failed tee of US Open winner Brooks Koepka from the ball in the face, wants to sue the organizer for damages and reimbursement. Remande is blind in the right eye since the incident.

"Of course, the organizers had a responsibility in this situation, they have not met," said the injured, who had traveled with her husband Raphael as a spectator. After Koepka's failed tee it was foreseeable that the ball flew at high speed in the direction of the spectators. "There should have been a warning through the folders," Remande told the news agency AFP,

Remande had collapsed bleeding in the incident and taken to a hospital. The 28-year-old Koepka had apologized to her on the spot, he had been very affected, said Remande: "I'm not angry with him, I even tried to think positive about him, so he does not lose his concentration. "

She has not heard from the organizers since then. "I just want to make sure they pay for any medical costs because I do not know what treatments will be needed in the future," Remande said. She will visit a lawyer in Lyon on Tuesday.
