It's never good to get physically hit by anything, and that includes a drive from one of the best golf players in the world. Fortunately for ESPN anchor Sage Steele, who got plunked by a wayward golf ball off a Jon Rahm drive at the 2022 PGA Championship, she was able to come away from that incident without any major injuries.

According to Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post, Steele was done doing work for the day when she got struck by Rahm's drive.

Steele was covering the major at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Okla., for ESPN’s “SportsCenter.” She had concluded her work on the program for the day and was watching the tournament from the gallery of credentialed media. She was hospitalized after being struck with the ball.

Steele released a statement Saturday, expressing her gratitude to the people who showed concern as well as to the medical personnel who attended to her.

“I just want to thank everyone for your concerns and prayers during the last couple of days,” Steele said in her statement. “From the doctors, nurses and EMTs at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, to my doctor and dentist here in Connecticut, and my co-workers at ESPN, I am so grateful. With the help of my team, I hope to recover quickly for my three kids, and get back to work. Looking forward to seeing everyone again soon.”

There have been no reports yet about whether Rahm actually knew at that time whether he hit someone with his drive or not, but what's clear is it's purely accidental.

Rahm, who entered the event as among the heavy favorites to take home the Wanamaker Trophy,  isn't having a fine tournament at Southern Hills, firing a 73 in the opening round, then a 69 in the second, and a 76 in the third for a +8, heading to the final day of the 2022 PGA Championship.
