A golfer related to me a potentially fatal story with a happy ending. He was playing with a golfer who set up behind the tee box instead of being aligned with it. Well as golf goes shots go to and fro in a crazy way and his big drive hit the ceramic post on the tee box and popped him the eye and down he went “like a sack of potatoes”. A rescue posse was sent and lots of ice later he continued his game! This reminds me of the time I was hit in the chest by a nasty slice by someone in my foursome. A crazy angle and an “impossible slice” which as it turned out was not so impossible. Such pain! A valuable learning experience. Stand behind the hitter lest you be hit. 15 inches of difference and my face may have been shattered. I went to a doctor the next day and he had a chuckle at my third breast and apologized profusely telling me at medical school he had studied a golfer hit in the face by a golf ball. His face was ruined. Golfers take care!
