that is a bad day lol.  A guy at my club played a round at a neighboring country club and his group found a dead gentleman in his yard across the street from the course (city course).  Apparently the guy was doing yard work and had a massive heart attack.  Needless to say their round was over.

funny that this would come up today. I played a round yesterday and a couple minutes before the course I saw a buch of police cars uner a bridge. from a distance you think maybe a drug bust. as I got closer I could see a body bag . looked up and a truck had flipped over ,  all busted and mangled , with  a door open. looks like the driver was thrown out of the truck down the bank.  the highway was busy with traffic , no ambulance looks like it had just happened .

I was in the range a couple of years ago. An elderly guy hit his second close to the pin on the par 5 first hole he got so excited that he suffered a massive heart attack and died. True story. What a way to go.

If I holed my second shot on a par 5, then I think I would be ready to depart this world

No death, but a bunch of yellow jackets flew up my shorts last Saturday and stung me. I learned something new, I am allergic to stings.

I play with some senior golfers from time to time.............

One of them told me about one of his former golf partners.  He said his partner was short of breath after putting out.  They had teed off on the next hole and charlie was still still in the cart..They said...."Charlie...you're up"....or something to that effect and he was slumped over in his cart dead.  This is how I want to go.......

So a good friend and golfing buddy had a heart attack on Thursday of this past week. It was while playing hockey not golf but this is still related. When I visited him in the hospital on Friday he made the comment that if it ever happens during a round that we should prop him up in the cart, put a beer in his hand and finish the round. I laughed pretty hard when he said that and most importantly was happy that he was doing well enough to even make such an awesome comment considering the circumstances. If there is where I go it could be worse :)

Second the "Police can't pronounce death" comment.

Even on something as obvious as someone with a hole in the side of their head, a medic still has to come to the scene and pronounce time of death.
