Golf is a difficult game to play well and it can be a very frustrating experience. It is easy to become aggravated at the game, the ball, the club, yourself, your playing partners and even your family. The following article came from the “Philly.Com” website. It seems one brother took out his frustration on his brother, actually on his brother’s nose, with a golf club.
Brothers’ golf argument ends in broken nose

An argument between brothers at a West Philadelphia golf course turned nasty this afternoon when one broke the nose of the other with a club, police said.
The brothers, 41 and 45, were at the 12th hole at the Cobbs Creek Golf Club about 2:45 p.m. when the older brother grabbed the flag and tossed it onto the green, said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives.
The younger brother, who had paid for the round, expressed anger for his sibling’s behavior and tried to leave by himself in a golf cart, Walker said. The older brother jumped on the cart, elbowed his brother in the face, then hit him on the nose with a golf club.
The injured brother, who lives in Swedesboro, N.J., was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for treatment, Walker said.
Detectives tonight were preparing an arrest warrant for the older brother, who was not yet in custody. Their names were not released.
Walker did not know what type of club was used in the attack.
How do you hit your brother with a club? What kind of knucklehead is this guy? So, this guy was so out of control he takes a club to his brother’s face. There are no words to describe how utterly brainless this guy must be. Unfortunately there isn’t any way to keep these guys off the golf course or maybe there is. Arrest the guy and prosecute him. Maybe he’ll think twice the next time he loses it and takes a swing at somebody.
