Golf tip: no need to yell “fore”!

Planning to dash off to a warm spot this winter for a few rounds of golf? Well, if your ball is shooting toward the head of another duffer, you can comfortably keep your mouth shut. No joke: a judge has even weighed in on this.

According to the New York Court Appeals, Business Insider writes, “being hit without warning by a ‘shanked’ shot while one searches for one’s own ball reflects a commonly appreciated risk of golf.” Who knew golf was so risky?

So, take note: the next time you step onto a golf course, you’re taking your life into your own hands. Maybe it’s time to don a helmet for 18 holes?
