It’s not every day that an argument on the golf course escalates to Happy Gilmore vs. Bob Barker proportions. (If you get the movie reference, then you know what we mean.)
But for those of you who may not have heard, such a disruption took place on a Douglas County golf course Sunday evening.
According to the course general manager, a foursome cut in front of a couple, which then proceeded to hit into the foursome. A heated exchange followed and the police were called.
Tiger Woods’ storied rivalry with Phil Mickelson hasn’t produced any outbursts on the green. The pair even played the final round of the Masters together.
So with the golf world turning its attention to Bethpage Black, site of this week’s U.S. Open and Sunday’s raucous play on the greens, we ask: What are the things that other golfers do that upset you most?
Do you observe course etiquette? How do you prevent confrontations, or would you have reacted the same way as the pair in Douglas County?
