If you watched the FIFA World Cup, you can learn from those world class players how they cry father cry mother... those are really Grammy-worthy performances Laughing

Now you know why he is on the last flight today.. ROFL

On a more serious note, depending on how you got hit by the ball, you may not be able to claim if it is proven that the golfer has taken care and diligent when hitting the ball (ie. making sure that there is nobody is front when he hits the ball or shouting fore) or the golfer that got hit was behaving in a dangerous manner (ie, coming into the 'borrowed; fairway without checking, etc).

Guys, how about let's talk bout how we all try not to get hit by golf ball or accidentally hitting others ? Golf need not be a dangerous game if people have common sense. Prevention is better than cure (or compensation).

This morning while lining up my putt at airforce hole nine, I hear the sound of a ball from hole one tee box crashing in the area behind me (bout 25m) behind. The offending golfer never shout 'fore'. 'nevermind' I thought to myself as I focused on reading the green. Moments later, another ball came crashing behind and whizzed behind me, took a bounce on my green and rolled out

those jerks from first tee peered from their tee box and waved. Waved for what? 'you gotta shout - fore!' I exclaimed. Why is it that some golfers find it so hard to shout 'fore'? Is it an ego issue that some ppl refused to shout so as not to admit they have poor technique? Hey, it is ok to hit poor shots, even pros hit bad shots at time. Etiquette demands that we warn others on course.

If I kena hit by the 2nd ball, I'll surely... Pardon my ranting folks. Be safe everyone
