Some days at Community, it gets hard to find places to hit the ball and not risk nailing somebody. I've had numbskulls fly out in front of my tee box after shanking one. One afternoon we were all set to hit our drives and a four-some rolls up and parks 50 yards away. All four hit balls back toward the adjacent green. Didn't say anything. Just crossed my arms and glared.
I've had balls land within 10' of me multiple times at Kittyhawk and Community with no warning. It is pretty bad here which might be why that guy over-reacted.
