A Florida man is suing Tiger Woods and his caddie, Joseph LaCava, for injuries suffered during an alleged shoving incident at the 2018 Valspar Championship, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Matt Baker.
The accuser, Brian Borruso, is alleging that LaCava pushed him, causing him to "stumble and fall into the crowd of spectators” after Woods' ball landed over the green and wound up in the gallery, according to Baker. Borruso claims he was attempting to take a selfie with Woods when LaCava pushed him.
Borruso is seeking $30,000 in damages for injuries that allegedly aggravated an existing health condition and led to him losing his ability to earn income.
Borusso's lawyer, Josh Drechsel, claims the incident is captured on video and says the PGA Tour has "refused to cooperate."
Tiger is named in the suit because he employs LaCava. The suit cites the USGA's Rule 10.3 that states: "A player is responsible for his or her caddie’s actions both during a round and while play is stopped under 5.7a, but not before or after a round."
The suit accuses LaCava of negligence, culpable negligence, and battery.
