- Følge sikkerhetsreglene på banen (ikke slå ut på Hull1 når noen er på Green Hull 8 – ikke gå inn på green hull 8 før hull 9 har slått ut)
- Å lære/minne spillere (nye som gamle) om generelt kun å slå når det er sikkert å sl
- Oppmuntre spillerene til å vite hvor på banen de er og å tenke over hvor farene «Lurer», slik at en snur deg vekk fra der ballen kommer
Beskrivelsen av ulykken her minner oss på hvor viltig det er med sikkerhet på ALLE baner ALLTID – også Jæren Golf.
A golfer’s stray shot has resulted in a £750,000 court battle over the use of the traditional warning cry of «fore» after another player lost an eye. Anthony Phee said he ducked and put a hand up when he heard the shout but was still struck by the ball hit by James Gordon and felt his eye «explode».
44 year old Mr Phee, is taking legal action against Mr Gordon and the Niddry Castle golf club in Winchburgh, West Lothian. His opponents claim that, rather than taking protective action, Mr Phee looked up in response to hearing the warning.
«I heard a shout. The moment I heard the shout my hand went up. It was that instant, there was no delay,» he said. «I did hear thefore and I did duck. I didn’t know where the fore was coming from. I didn’t know which direction anything was.
I had no idea where the ball was coming from.»His damaged eye had to be removed. Mr Phee stated that there were no signs asking those on the course to be aware of shots from the 18th tee or to wait while it was being played
