Hi Bros and Sis,

Next time on the course and if you hear thunder please remove your ball marker from your cap if you have the clip-on one and put it in golf bag.

Have a plastic marker ready for use.

Jus my 2 cents worth.

Good tip. I was also told that when there's lightning, keep your mobile phone out of your pants or pockets. Leave it in your bag at the buggy instead.

Good advice. Metal certainly attract electricity than others.
To add to that, answering the phone or listening to music with earpiece during storm is not a good idea as well. There is some reports telling lightning struck user with earpiece.

However, whatever the theory is, always avoid in the situation. Because, lightning strikes trees (and Merlion) which not listening to iPod or not carrying handphone.

Lightning Strikes Reported by IPod Users
By LINDA A. JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer
Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Listen to an iPod during a storm and you may get more than electrifying tunes. A Canadian jogger suffered wishbone-shaped chest and neck burns, ruptured eardrums and a broken jaw when lightning traveled through his music player's wires.

it's amazing how someone can get struck by lightning but even more amazing that one of his flight mates knew CPR. that probably saved his life!

I just visited my friend Lye Huat at the hospital ....
his condition is stable and he can breath on his own ..... i think despite in a coma he knows we are there to see him .... We pray for his speedy recovery .... due to go Xiamen to golf again in Dec ....


Golfers ... try not to have you handphone in your pocket or waist whatever ..... and also no metallic objects on the head.... his other 3 friends were about 10 yds from him and only he was hit .... luckily it was not a direct hit ..... Lye Huat ... pls wake up !!!!!

Hope he recovers soon w/o any aftermath issues....

BTW, what was he carrying on him that attracted the strike (other than maybe the golf club)?

P.S. Does it mean that the ball marker on the cap could be a danger??? confused
