Condoleezza Rice hit spectator in head during first round of Pebble Beach

It's been a pretty incredible few months for Condoleezza Rice. The former secretary of state, along with Darla Moore, became one of two women accepted as members of Augusta National, a first for the home of the Masters, and she continued her golfing adventures this week at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Problem is, when you're at Augusta on a random Tuesday there aren't patrons lining the fairways watching you swing, but at a PGA Tour event, they are everywhere.

Rice hit a spectator on the sixth hole at Pebble Beach on Thursday after a bad swing went 50 yards into the gallery. The ball smacked the female fan in the forehead, causing what was later called concussion-like symptoms and while the lady that got hit wouldn't give her name, Rice got an assistant to get her number so she could later contact her to make sure she was alright.

According to one report, Rice approached the woman and asked, "Did I hit you? It was a bad shot. Iím really sorry," which is probably as honest as most golfers get when they pull one badly into another fairway, but luckily it seems the lady will be alright.

4. Suck it, Dick Cheney!

Anyone can hit someone in the head with a shotgun. This, however, took skill, and dare I say it, genius.
