PGA Tour pro Harry Higgs has described how shaken players were after a caddie collapsed and received CPR during the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
At the time of writing the news is good, with various reports suggesting the looper will be okay after he was rushed to hospital.
The caddie collapsed on the 11th hole at Pebble Beach. He was eventually placed onto a stretcher and taken away by ambulance.
The scene was described by ESPN's Paolo Ugetti, who was there when it happened.

PGA Tour players Beau Hossler and Max McGreevy were in the group and were obviously affected by what happened.
According to Uggetti, they were at odds with PGA Tour officials about whether or not to continue playing.
They eventually returned to the clubhouse and later came back out to the course, playing at the back of the field.
Higgs was playing in the group behind.
He told the media:
Higgs said he was approximately 200 yards away from the medics "hammering away". Their group was eventually waived through.
Higgs was alluding to the moment Damar Hamlin, of the Buffalo Bills, suffered cardiac arrest during a Monday night NFL game.
He said that throughout the rest of the day, there was an eerie vibe with no energy.
