Taking the Game a Mite Too Seriously...

10 posts in this topic

Started to post this in the "How Far Is Too Far" thread, but decided that thread was about distance and not degree.

In the news -- A 65 year old golfer expressed disagreement with his partner's score. The partner, a 59 year old, struck the other on the arm with a Callaway 5 iron, breaking the shaft. Perhaps further enraged by his equipment failure, he proceeded to stab his partner with the broken shaft.

Guess the story was not written by an equipment junkie, because it was not specified what the shaft was -- almost certainly graphite  but what model? -- or what model of Callaway iron the 59 year old was playing with.   Nor are we given details on what the alleged rules violation was.   Surely that was more interesting than that the judge ordered $100,000 bail.

But notice one requirement of releasing the defendant on bond:  "No contact with any golf courses."

Totally sad.  It is just a game.  I feel the same when I hear or see fans fight at a sporting event.

Definitely a rookie when it comes to rage on the golf course.  Everyone who has had a lot of rage on the golf course knows that you aim for the legs so the guy can't run away when you are ready to stab him.  Also using a 5 Iron,...should have chosen a less important club like a 9 Iron.

Hockey parents are the worst. Soccer moms can be bad too but at least it's "hot" when women fight. ;-)

I have been fortunate never to see even loud arguing on the course other than guys yelling about hitting into them.  I play as a single a lot, and I also have never played with anyone that even remotely exhibited this kind of personality.

That's friggin hilarious. On a serious note, what the hell is wrong with people? Totally unacceptable......... Unless of course, there was a cold beer riding on low score.

No contact with any golf courses? Any real golfer would just choose death over that or need to be put on suicide watch. Of course he may not be a real golfer, he left part of his club on the course.

I would hope that their was some serious action on the outcome of that match.  If it was a casual round or just for a couple of dollars then that would make it more insane, if that is possible.  Their are a few guys at my club that no longer play in our group because one time their was a disagreement over 1 dollar.  Are you freaking kidding me? You are a member of a country club and are getting pissed and storming out of the clubhouse, willing to fight other friends/people in your group over a freaking dollar.

I don't care how much "action" was riding on the outcome.    We are talking about assault with a deadly weapon.   No game is worth hurting someone over.

Not just hockey parents. Did you see the coach that tripped an opposing player in the handshake line? Amazingly sad.
