O’Hair Hits Fan, Saves Life

Last Fourth of July, Sean O’Hair hit a 25-year-old fan in the temple on his last hole at the AT&T National. On Tuesday, the fan met O’Hair and thanked him — while getting checked out for a concussion after getting hit, the fan was told by the doctor to check out a lump on his throat, allowing him to catch a malignant tumor in his thyroid early and now be cancer-free.

“We had a little battle on what to say,” said Chris Logan, the lucky fan who’s a former caddie from West Chester, PA. “He hit me in the head and then helped me out with the cancer diagnosis. So that was pretty funny. He’s a really nice guy, glad to finally meet him.” Logan was a fan of O’Hair even before the blow to the head.

“You feel bad about hitting him, but yet you feel good that he found out about the cancer, found it early, and got it worked on,” said O’Hair. “It’s a cool experience.”

O’Hair’s best finish this season was a T16 at Colonial last month. He was with Hunter Mahan were at a golf clinic when Logan came to thank him. In other news, O’Hair revealed he’s a big fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. “It would be fun to watch [superstar quarterback Michael] Vick be healthy and play some good football,” he said.
