When Golf Courses Attack

No, really... when golf courses attack:

A nearly 40-foot tree limb fell next to the fourth green at the PGA Championship on Friday, injuring a spectator and two television employees.

The limb sheered off a red oak next to the green and a television tower at Baltusrol Golf Club, and fell approximately 60 feet.

A spectator and two employees of Turner/CBS Sports were injured, the PGA of America said in a statement. The names of the injured were not immediately released.

Pat gets a no-prize that talks softly into a microphone for no reason for bringing us this bit of golf "excitement". She gets a special bonus for this bon mot: "At least there were no boy scouts around the tree."
