Bizarre Golf Ball Injury Knocks New Zealander Tim Wilkinson Out of Sony Open

New Zealand golfer Tim Wilkinson suffered a bizarre injury when his golf ball ricocheted and nailed him in the shoulder.

On the eighth hole Wilkinson was trying to hit out of a ditch off the fairway. Unfortunately for him, the shot didn't go as planned... His ball hit a tree, came back and hit him in his collarbone. OUCH! Causing him to immediately withdraw from the Sony Open.

Wilkinson is currently the only New Zealander on the PGA tour. He was 173rd on 2009's PGA tour money list and he's currently ranked 311th in the world.
