Remande said on Monday that she plans to sue the competition’s organisers over the incident.

“I was deeply hurt and saddened by the tragic accident,” Koepka tweeted on Tuesday.

“I have made contact with her family to offer my sincere and heartfelt sympathy,” he wrote

“I am heartbroken by the incident. My thoughts remain with Ms. Remande and her family, and I have asked to be kept informed on her condition.”
