Like the title states....ever? (Warning....long story)
A while back my brother and I were playing a small 9 hole course (18 tee boxes 9 greens) near his home when we came up on hole with a very hard dog leg right..almost 90 degrees. My brother decides to grip it and rip it and cut the corner while I laid up for a long second shot. He hit a beautiful shot up and over the trees....when we came around the corner...laying there in the middle of the fairway was his ball...about three feet from a very dead Canadian goose......He was quite shaken and felt bad but I convinced him to shake it off and finish the round, I dragged the goose off to the side and finished out.........Later that after noon on the very same hole but from the other tee, I joked with my brother about the "death hole" trying to make light of the situation. He grabs his club and again hits a beautiful shot up and over the trees....a very distinct "boink" sound echo's through the trees and I said to him.."sounds like you hit a tree out there" we walk around the corner and there laying about 6 feet from my brothers ball is a man...out could with a trickle of blood running down the side of his head.......they drove the ambulance right down the fairway and took the guy to the hospital. Turns out he was looking for his drive from another hole and had wandered out onto our fairway.....he was ok but suffered a pretty nasty shot to the head. Needless to say, I still cannot get my brother out on that course...in fact for a while I was worried he would give up the game all together...still refers to it as the worst day he ever had in any sport.
anyone else have any experience with something like this?
