It seems that nowhere on the golf course is safe anymore.
This photographer was standing off to the side simply trying to get some photos of the golfers and their incredible tee-shots, only to see this tee-shot come his way and drill him right in the stomach.
The shot left quite a bruise but thankfully the photographer was okay. And hey, he did receive a signed golf ball from the golfer.
When one of @graeme_mcdowell 's Fantasy Golf Campers rips a 145mph drive on the first tee of the very first hole of first inaugural fantasy weekend into your big belly at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, you count your lucky stars the Callaway didn't do real damage. Angelo, "The Assassin," felt horrible for the accident and we quickly became friends. Many thanks to GMac and Ritz Orlando golf staff for making sure I was OK. GMac made Angelo hit driver on the range while using Trackman, which is how we knew it was 145mph! I've been a golf photographer for 20 years, had a few close calls, but never seriously hit...until the Assassin came to town. #golf #golfphotography #gmac #ritzcarlton #orlando #florida #usa #assassin
