HAHAHHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!! all the while I was thinking " any of those clips could easily have been me". I know of someone who actually broke his ankle as he had his foot out of the buggy while driving. It snagged a rope,

Wow...some of these look pretty dangerous...when i was younger, i had similar experiences:
1. Being flung from the buggy while 'wind surfing'
2. Doing 180*s/270*s going downhill on wet fairways
3. Crashing into trees, other buggies, lamposts, etc
4. Rolled over a caddie's foot as i fell out of the buggy thinking i was going forward when the buggy was in reverse mode....hurt my coccyx aka my a55 bone...
5. Tore my ankle ligaments when i jumped out of a moving buggy....my leg got stuck underneath my body as i flipped over....felt like guitar strings snapping....i blame this incident for my chicken legs....

In the wrong hands, these buggies can be pretty dangerous.....as i've mentioned before, some kid who'd joined my flight reversed into one of MBGC's pot bunkers narrowly escaping serious injury......it's all fun and games 'til someone gets hurt.....

Super hilarious clips but I'm pretty sure people get hurt in such accidents.
Drive safe guys.. Even if it's a buggy.

That video showed me 2 things:

1. Buggies are dangerous
2. People are stupid.

I know a gentleman who was thrown out of a buggy his friend was driving, the buggy toppled, he hit a big rock, and got multiple fractures in both arms and injured his spine.

He was hospitalised while his buddies continued.

The physical therapy lasted almost a year, and he searched throughout the region for traditional healers when western medicine said there was no more that can be done.

Today, a couple of years later, he is back to playing golf, but has not regained the full use of some of his fingers.

So, do be careful, the buggy is not a toy, You can get seriously hurt.

I think it happened to some of the forerunners here too. I mean falling out of the buggy. Luckily for them, its not serious. Maybe a bruise here and there.

it reminds me of sometime last year, at palm spring, 2 female golfers with 2 female caddies, 1 buggy...while one of the female golfer hitting the ball, the other female golfers drove the buggy down into water with her caddy. the female golf on the ground saw that can quickly jump into water to save her new bought SLR camera, at the end, all 4 female were totally wet....

this 2 ladies were part of our group to golf in batam...sigh !!!
