On Friday, during the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the caddie for an amateur player suddenly collapsed and was rushed to a nearby hospital after receiving CPR.

According to ESPN‘s Paolo Uggetti, the play was interrupted for nearly one hour after Pebble Beach businessman Geoff Couch’s caddie, who remains unidentified, suddenly collapsed on the 11th-hole fairway.

Just talked to Max McGreevy who said the caddie collapsed in middle of the fairway and they attempted to get his bag off him quickly so they could try CPR. Asked if he could see his group resuming play, he said no.

PGA Tour chief referee Gary Young said a spectator initiated CPR until medical personnel arrived. He was rushed in an ambulance to Montage Health in Monterey, California.

Country singer Lukas Nelson and PGA Tour professionals Beau Hossler and Max McGreevy were among other members of the group who appeared shaken by what they witnessed. Couch departed the team shortly after the ambulance arrived.

American professional golfer Beau Hossler said, “I can’t say that I’m real comfortable at the moment to resume play.”

“I turn around and he’s on the ground and I ran over to him and turned him over,” said country singer Lukas Nelson, the other amateur in the group.

“And he didn’t have a lot of color in him. Luckily, there was a police officer on the sideline. He knew CPR so he came in and effectively saved his life.”

Nelson told ESPN’s Paolo Uggetti that the caddie is now “doing better.”

Players and caddies now hugging each other. Lukas Nelson, the other amateur, just told me the caddie who collapsed is “doing better.” The group is headed back to the clubhouse to regroup. Unclear if they’ll continue play.

The PGA Tour later released a statement following the incident:

During the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, there was a medical emergency at No. 11 at Pebble Beach involving an amateur’s caddie. The caddie has been rushed to Montage Health for evaluation.

At the direction of the PGA TOUR Rules Committee, the players in that group – Max McGreevy and Beau Hossler – paused play during the medical emergency and will be allowed to warm up and resume their round shortly.

We will provide additional details when available.
