Watch a full-blown fist fight break out on a Colorado golf course

August 02, 2016

What's the worst you've seen when someone hits a ball into the group in front? Some yelling? Maybe someone stepping on the ball? Possibly someone hitting the ball back at the group?

OK, now you're just thinking of that scene from Sideways:

But seriously, this serious breach of golf etiquette can cause some heated exchanges on the course. And thanks to someone's cell phone, we have proof of a recent one.

Guy in the blue must be a southpaw.
