ATLANTA (AP) - Lightning struck a pine tree right after play at the Tour Championship was suspended, and ambulances took five people from the golf course.
The tree was located just off the 16th tee at East Lake. It struck the top and shattered bark all the way to the bottom on Saturday.

A tournament official says the six people who left in ambulances appeared alert and none of the injuries seemed life threatening.
The five ambulances streamed into East Lake across the entrance of the driving range to the 16th hole.

The tournament was halted right around 5:30 pm on Saturday and will resume Sunday morning.
