Nobody was known to get sick after "E" Coli bacteria was found in a water station for fans at the U-S Open golf tournament at Erin Hills near Hartford.

The Washington/Ozaukee County health agency says it found the bacteria in a sample taken from a station connected to a well at the 12th hole. The water line was shut off during the opening day of the tournament Thursday, but officials say fans might have drank the contaminated water between Tuesday's practice rounds and Thursday morning. The U-S-G-A, which puts on the Open, says it will give fans bottled water at all hydration stations for the rest of the tournament, which runs through Sunday.
