adu"I was scared -- scared for him," Real Salt Lake forward Jamie Watson told KSL TV after he witnessed teammate Freddy Adu get pegged in the head by a 300-yard drive on hole 9 at Sandy's Old Mill golf course. "I didn't want to be the guy who was with Freddy when he died. That's what I was worried about mostly. I was like 'Freddy please be all right.'" In fact, Adu continued golfing and shot 39 on the back nine.

The drive came from a high school golfer, who was relieved that Adu was OK.

"Some guys were behind us just playing into us," Adu told KSL TV . "I don't know how I got hit but I got hit from 300 yards away right on the head and I don't know how. I'm like I'm OK right now so I'm fine.

Real coach Jason Kries said, "It's definitely not a sport that is against his contract. Obviously we limit the things that the players are allowed to do off the course and you wouldn't think we'd have players getting head injuries or sustaining injuries on the golf course, so that's odd. But he looked OK in practice today. There was no dizziness involved. He was conscious. So we're happy."
