Six people were injured by a lightning strike at the season-ending PGA Tour Championship event outside Atlanta Saturday.

Tournament broadcaster NBC Sports reported that a lightning bolt struck the area of the 16th tee at East Lake Golf Club approximately 30 minutes after play was suspended due to thunderstorms in the area.

The article goes on to state the following:

NBC host Mike Tirico said six people were taken from the course in ambulances and were described as alert.

Golfweek reported:

The PGA Tour released a statement saying EMT treated six fans in total and transported them immediately for further medical assistance. It also said that according to its latest report, their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

Third-round play has been suspended and will resume at 8 a.m. Sunday morning.

The lightning bolt struck a tree near the 15th green/16th hole and was so loud that multiple players surveying the grounds from a clubhouse balcony visibly shook when it made a huge cracking sound.
