An epidemic seems to be emerging among major golf championships following yet another golf cart incident.
Earlier this year, we learned how somebody received a DWI after hitting a state trooper with a golf cart at the US Open. Now comes word of another incident involving the same thing at the British Open.
"Merseyside police said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press that a 45-year-old man from the local area took the golf cart from the course and collided with the guard, who sustained a slight leg injury.
We can confirm that a man has been arrested following an incident at The Open golf practice day in Hoylake at about 7:30 p.m. this evening," police said. "One man was arrested on suspicion of assault...Just before colliding with the barrier the buggy caught a security guard causing a slight injury to his leg."
We need to get these golf carts under control, people!
