He was knocked from his golf cart by a falling tree while a brief but severe storm was ripping through the course yesterday afternoon. Don't know whether he was coming in from playing or trying to clear the course of players but wow. He was a very well respected pro in the area.

Cripes.

Damn. I think it was last year, a tree fell (not hazardous conditions, think it was just damaged previously), and almost hit a guy in my gf's league when he was on the tee. The trunk landed about 5 feet in front of the gf's cart.

feel bad thinking about the priest in Caddyshack...

but I always make the joke that I don't think "the heavy stuff is going to come down for quite some time" when I am out on the course in less than great weather...

I mean isn't that the biggest PSA out there for that sort of thing? A scene from the most classic golf movie ever?

Not saying it isn't a terrible loss and my thoughts are with his friends and family though. It's very unfortunate.
