both kena fine. both can kill somebody.

so if the golfer play on a golf course and hit somebody. Suay. but got fault. (nvr shout fore etc)
- golfers playing on the course and range are expected find stray balls whether intentionally  or not.

if golfer hit somebody in the park. he is wrong and reckless. not suay. got difference.


If on golf course the golfer ball kill someone 

What will it be considered as?
1)On purpose: murder


2)Tee off. Saw it go offline. Gave warning but couldn't prevent: a very unfortunate accident. 

3) Anyhow tee up. Nvr check if front flight is clear. Nvr shout if see it go towards ppl or just out of sight: reckless. Negligent. And maybe even manslaughter. 

Maybe those who knows law cn explain. Just my 2 cents

"A story I was told -
A painter displayed his painting with some paints/brushes on the sidewalk . He added a note asking passer-by to comment on his painting.The next day ,  he went to see his painting n his painting was full of paints. 
so he left a blank canvas n another note asking passer-by to show him on how should he paint.u know what?
the blank canvas was still blank"


Hmmm interesting..but What does this story says?  Question  Question  Question

Can't believe this topic still alive!!! Anyway, I wonder why this guy cannot just over to bishan range to do this, regardless is he taking divots or not, using real balls or not. Put it this way, 50 balls in range can cost him how much? Considering the cost of a set of clubs and a 18 holes game surely it's a lot more ex than range.

A friend of mine tried practicing his sand shots at the beach all alone (or at least he thought he was alone). Someone called the police who arrived and ask him " what you trying to do in a public place hitting golf balls?" He was asked to stop and was told it not allowed as it was not a designated area for golf.......

The difference is that the population density of the beaches where both Choi and Ballesteros practised is like night and day versus Singapore's. There was probably no one around to even call the police.

I would also think that both had more common sense than to go to a crowded beach to practice their sand shots.

Sad.  This is the reality of Sg.
This cannot.  That cannot.
Here cannot.  There cannot...

Park cannot.  Beach cannot.
Everywhere cannot except range and designated areas.

I don't think it is just Singapore. Most countries won't allow you to practice in parks and beaches.

According to PM speech last night, it will depends on which part of the beach is the golf practice being conducted on for relevant government agencies to take actions. 

If it is purely on the beach, then it might be NEA. If on the beach which touches the sea, then become MPA. If on the beach which touches the bicycle track or grass, then it comes Nparks.

So who to take action? or need to establish also a Municipal services office to look at it.

perhaps the kiasi , kiasu attitude n the lack of mutual tolerant between people.

The level of understanding of how thing works like those feature in STOMP> where the guy shake his car , another guy jacked up his car in order to pump in more petrol at JB.

do they not know that liquid always seek the lowest level?

but we have the fastest gun in the east , shoot anyone down first that we do not agree then talk.
