Remande told AFP that the ball caused such damage that she has lost sight in her right eye. A scan showed that Remande’s right eye-socket is fractured and that her eyeball suffered an “explosion,” according to the BBC. 

“Doctors told me I had lost the use of that eye,” Remande told AFP.

Remande, who had travelled from Egypt to watch the tournament in Paris, is now considering taking legal action. According to Remande, the organisers have not made contact with her since the incident. Remande also told AFP that there was “no warning shout from the course official when the ball was heading towards the crowd.”

The topic of stray golf balls and the injuries they sometimes inflict on spectators has been debated in the world of golf many times before. Not all golfers are in the habit of yelling out “fore” (the official warning to those in the path of a stray golf ball.) 

Koepka, whose ball damaged Remande’s eye, told the BBC after accident that “You can yell ‘fore’ but it doesn’t matter from 300 yards, you can’t hear it.”

It is tradition that a golfer will sign gloves or balls, pay for hotel rooms or make other such gestures to the people they hit with their balls.

There has been no mention of wether Koepka has offered any help to Remande, though he came to check up on her after the ball hit her.
