Trending: Car drives onto golf course during U.S. Open qualifier

May 11, 2013

I've actually witnessed something very similar to this when I was a kid. I was playing on a course where one of the cart paths led to a landscaping garage that was adjacent to a parking lot. Sure enough, one day an old lady who thought the path went through came rolling down the 17th fairway. That's what I assume happened to this poor woman at Emerald Hills in Hollywood, Fla. yesterday during a U.S. Open qualifier.

As Deadspin points out, this path isn't anywhere near a driveway or a street or a parking lot, so like my childhood experience, she must've driven quite a ways before realizing her blunder and pulling a u-turn in the 11th hole bunker.
