Had a crazy one today at local range. Kid (approx. 10 years old) and mom show up at range, kid has a youth set of your clubs (mostly woods). They pick a stall about 6 stalls away from where I'm at so mom can sit on a bench, drink her coffee and watch.
I'm practicing, so only randomly paying attention to them and notice the kid hits some nice shots but mostly shanks. I then hear mom start to coach / yell at him that he's not concentrating, wasting her time, etc which gets him angry and he starts swinging harder (I can hear the shanks bouncing off the metal railing between each stall). She gives one last rant and out of corner of my eye I notice he's addressed the ball, but facing her not the range. Next thing I hear him ask her is "What am I doing wrong?", I hear the club head hit the ball and I hear her scream.
Luckily he hit her in the arm and not the face, she's crying, covered in coffee and he's just staring at her with a completely indifferent look on his face. I call over the range staff, run over to make sure she's okay. She was saying her arm was broke but I don't think it was. The range staff took over and they eventually calmed her down, she refused to let them call an ambulance and they left.
I couldn't get the image of the kid just staring, he never even apologized. The scene reminded me of the Omen movie when Damien watched the sister fall through the ice.
WOW wonder if that kid will be on the 5:00 news some day?
Kid beat mom with golf club!
