The incident caused Kerr to tear three ribs, stamp the pillow, arm and hand and possibly have to quit the US Women’s Open. After finishing the opening stage of the Women’s US Open, Kerr revealed the unfortunate story. “Maybe I shouldn’t have said that. I remember getting out of the car, smashing my body on the ground. It hurts,” Kerr told the media while crying. The accident left Kerr and caddie Matt Gelczis hospitalized for several hours. Gelczis swelling of the head and neck injuries.
