Of course it was a melee: a club is not a ranged weapon.

Soo the article makes it sound like one of the guys was attacked with a golf club. So why was he charged at all?

Everybody gets charged in a brawl.  The guy defending himself will probably get the charges dropped.

Two stroke penalty

That's probably not what they mean by "a friendly round of golf."

*boggle*

I was just making a dumb nerdy joke, but since you asked it was probably because of this:


After settling that dispute on the fifth hole, the men argued again on the seventh hole, with Harris hitting Bandes with the club and the men trading punches, Trooper George Mrosko wrote in a criminal complaint.

I was going to paste the rules related to "casual water", but there are a lot of them.

read at your leisure, but don't fight.

Apparently so...this one was in PA and the other one on the Fark front page took place in AZ

/never gotten in a fight on the golf course
//have called both my brother in law and my dad a dick though (seperately)

Shoot, they should have been there that time I got into it with my brother in law Craig over grounding a club in a hazard.

FTA: They were golfing in a group with three others at the Springdale Golf Course.

If they're allowing 5-somes, we're not talking about the social elite.

CSB: We live over looking a golf course. The golfers tee off facing our apartment, and we have had a stray ball go through our window. Anyways, on 4/20 this year, I looked down over the ledge and saw three golfers, laying down facing each other, sharing a joint right on the course. It was then that I realized golf could be fun. Maybe.

That explains a lot. I have never gone fisticuffs, but I've seen it happen a couple of times.

And the rule is if the water comes over the sole of the shoe in a closely mown area, it's a free drop.

Gotta know that one in Seattle.

I'd use my sand wedge.  I hardly use it, and I'm not gonna mess up my Nike driver over some punk.

Hardcore golfers sneer at casual water, insist on using nothing less than lava.

I would have taken a couple more swings at the car to make sure it couldn't be repaired

Or you could spark up without having to wear polo shirts, loud slacks and not lugging thirty pounds of clubs across a biological desert of thirsty, high-maintenance grass.

Not trying to start a brawl or anything, but what IS the rule concerning casual water?

Is a "golf course melee" anything like a "ballroom blitz"?
 
2014-08-08 03:20:16 PM  
Why did you beat that guy with a golf club?
We were arguing over a golf rule.
I see. And why did you beat that other guy with a golf club?
He was my mulligan.

You get a free lift out of a puddle not just a wet or muddy area.
