Amateur caddie collapses and receives CPR at AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

A caddie for an amateur required CPR after collapsing on the 11th hole during the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

The caddie, who was in the same group as PGA Tour professionals Beau Hossler and Max McGreevy, was put on a stretcher and put into an ambulance as play was halted at Pebble Beach.

ESPN's Paolo Uggetti reported that PGA Tour rules officials discussed resuming play with Hossler and McGreevy. Hossler was reported to have said, "I can’t say that I’m really comfortable at the moment to resume play."

Uggetti wrote on Twitter that the professional duo seemed shaken up and didn't want to resume. McGreevy said that the caddie collapsed in the middle of the fairway and they tried to get his bag off him as quickly as possible so CPR could be performed.

Lukas Nelson is the other amateur in the group with Geoff Couch, and he told Uggetti the caddie was "doing better." The PGA Tour Communications team have since released the following statement:

"During the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, there was a medical emergency at No.11 at Pebble Beach involving an amateur's caddie. The caddie has been rushed to Montage Health for evaluation.

"At the direction of the PGA Tour Rules Committee, the players in that group - Max McGreevy and Beau Hossler - paused play during the medical emergency and will be allowed to warm up and resume their round shortly."

The Tour will provide more details when they are available. Right now, Hossler and McGreevy are still yet to resume their second round. Uggetti reported that it is unclear if the group will resume play on Friday.
