A spectator died during the second round of the U.S. Open in Wisconsin, the United States Golf Association announced Friday afternoon.
"The USGA was saddened to learn that a spectator at Erin Hills passed away a short time ago," according to a statement. "Out of respect for the family, we are unable to provide additional information at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with those surrounding this individual during this difficult time."
An elderly man died of “natural causes” on the course, according to WITI-TV, a local Fox affiliate.
This comes on the heels of a blimp catching fire and crashing down above the tournament on Thursday, and traces of E. coli being found in the drinking water at a hydration station near the 12th hole at the Erin Hills golf course earlier Friday.
