Tournament organizers did not say where the incident occurred, nor did they disclose how far the fall was or where the woman landed.
“Today at the WM Phoenix Open, a fan suffered non-life-threatening injuries following a fall at the 16th hole,” a statement from the PGA Tour said.
‘Scottsdale Fire and Bike Squad paramedics quickly responded to the scene to provide immediate medical attention to the injured fan and then provided safe transport to a local medical center for further evaluation.
‘The WM Phoenix Open works closely with law enforcement, fire and medical organizations and the PGA Tour to strategically place emergency units throughout the tournament grounds to immediately address health and safety situations.

‘We will provide additional details if and when appropriate out of respect for medical privacy.’
It is not known who was injured in the fall, nor is it known what condition the woman was in at the time of the accident.
The Phoenix Open has earned a reputation as one of the more raucous, fan-oriented and engaging events on the PGA Tour – with the 16th hole serving as the centerpiece.
This included one fan who was seen being carried out of the front gate of the tournament on the shoulders of another man.
Elsewhere in the grounds, fans were seen sliding down a mud-covered hill after stormy weather moved through this week.
The police eventually came by and closed the slide – causing the patrons to boo the officers.
