    Re: Ouch!!

    I have been hit once on the back of the head by someone playing in my group.

    I was in the left rough and he was in the right rough. He was trying to punch it out into the fairway and caught it a bit too clean with a 7 iron. Luckily no damage done and was able to continue.

    had a good few near misses. I was leaning up against a very small tree one day and a ball cannoned off the opposite side of the tree which was the same height as my head from a drive on the other hole.

    Been hit on the bag whilst carrying from someone who tee'd off while we were leaving the green.

    Also a friend of mine was walking down the adjacent fairway and was hit by a drive from another hole right on the shoulder where the bag straps cover.

The last one on the side of the jaw/cheek that brought on lots of blood and a ride in the air ambulance - the ride was ably assisted with morphine, wow!
    Do you think your playing partners are trying to tell you something?

    I did ask for a signed glove but sadly none was forthcoming!

    Hes keeping quiet about it (other than PM) but I do have to out IanG as a member of the group that hit me... although not his shot!

    I hit a guy a few years back with a ball down the left side of the fairway I was playing. He had just walked out without looking and when his mates yelled out a ball was coming his way, he apparently said "from where?" and then got ******* on the side of the head. He was OK and I did phone to see if he was all right that evening but the signed glove gag was being done whilst he was on the floor.

    A wayward drive from an adjacent hole caught me full on the shin. Pretty painful at the time, and it swelled right up but was able to finish the round then get ice on it. Looks like no lasting damage, just tender today, so maybe got off lightly.
    Hope your alright Karen, dig out your insurance policy, could pay for your new car

    Take care Jim, but it would've probably passed straight through the void

    Yes, I was a member of the 'fore'-chorus. Sickening when you see someone tumble to the ground from 200 yards away.

    Later, when my playing partner realised I knew FD, it was soooo tempting to tell him that 'yes I did, and that she's a Personal Injury Barrister by day' but I resisted.

    You must have been on the left of then Karen, if it had been the right you had more chance of being hit by Ian

    Sounds like you could have taken a few out with your round on Saturday from what I heard

    We had a guy at our place who managed to hit himself.

    OK...to be clear he was warming up in the net and he shanked one into the metal stanchions which ricocheted straight back into his face. Was a bit messy but fair do's to the guy once he'd got himself sorted he went out and played in the medal.
