Out of all the professional sports out there, Golf seems to be that one chill sport where fights, brawls, and just overall bad behavior is not only frowned upon, it rarely ever happens.
That all changes if one party gets accused of cheating.
One golfer, who competed in the club championship at Lake Club Benoni in South Africa, was in the clubhouse after his victory when a guy strolled in and accused him loudly of cheating during that match.
The winning golfer — named Mike — took exception to the accusations, so he responded by walking over and pushing, punching the guy through a nearby window.
The club posted a statement to Facebook on Monday:
On behalf of Lake Club we duly apologise for the unfortunate situation that happened during our Club championship prize giving yesterday. Please note that we do not accept nor condone any such behaviour as we have obligation to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all our members and guests. It is very unfortunate that the video has gone Viral as this is a once off incident and is not indicative of the fellowship we have at our club.
Urgent meetings to discuss the way forward have already taken place and we can assure you that the situation will be dealt with both fairly and promptly. We request your patience in the meanwhile. We will ensure that a communication will follow once the relevant Sanctions have been imposed.
