BBC Sport: A spectator blinded in one eye at the Ryder Cup says she could have died after being hit by a wayward golf ball.

Corine Remande, 49, was injured when American Brooks Koepka’s drive on the par-four sixth hole veered off course at Le Golf National and struck her. The Frenchwoman has told BBC Sport she would have been even more seriously injured if the ball had missed her right eye and hit the side of her head.

“For me, it’s finished. I could not speak with you,” she said. Mrs Remande had travelled with husband Raphael from their home in Egypt to watch the Ryder Cup on the outskirts of Paris.
