American golf course worker hit by tee shot, dies

SANFORD, Florida (AP)—A maintenance worker at a central Florida country club has been struck dead by a golfer’s tee shot.
Police say Maurice Hayden was pulling weeds near a tree at the Mayfair Country Club in Sanford on Wednesday when he was struck in the temple about 30 yards away.
The 42-year-old man was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital. Police say he died Thursday after being removed from life support.
Police say the shot was an accident and that the golfer will not face charges.

Brings back memories of another tragedy that happened in Malaysia in the 90's when a young lawyer lost his life while practicing in the driving range in Bukit Jalil Golf club. This is a PLEA to all golfers out there, PLEASE take care and be aware of new comers and also Kids in the driving range area's. Please follow all rules and etiquette on and off the course especially in the practice area. Apple iPod touch 8 GB (4th Generation) NEWEST MODELApple iPod touch 8 GB (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL
