Play was being suspended for the second consecutive time when the incident occurred.
The second round of play was cancelled and no further play was allowed.
Megan Hill, Eyewitness to Megan Hill, told the Augusta Chronicle that she was sitting looking for the next group and it fell between eight and ten chairs to our left.
“I stood up, screamed, and wondered if it was going to fall on my head. It fell to our left and was so frightening. We might have been hit if the wind had been blowing in a different direction.
Deshey Thomas, another spectator, said: “Pinecones started hitting us in our backs, so we turned around to look up and heard a loud cracking sound and the tree had basically crushed the 10 chairs that were seated there.
“We were able to get everyone out of there. We were blessed.”
