I could see it... Sad.
Weird Golf Course Death
By Kickntrue on 10/5/09
Usually when I find death on the golf course stories- they involve a cart or a heart attack, but not this one. This story involves a 61 year old Texan and an embankment.
Sgt. Kevin Perlich said 61-year-old William Michael Grant was playing in a tournament Friday at Sherrill Park Golf Course in Richardson when he overshot a green.

Police said Grant was trying to get the stray ball when witnesses saw him slip and fall about 10 feet.

He was taken by ambulance to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
There is a course near me where I could totally see this happening. It is an island green where the edges are unguarded and fall about 10 feet into water. The thing is- on the edges of the lake are concrete foundations which you'd hit first. There have been a couple times when I've been walking backwards to read a putt- not even thinking about it only to have someone else warn me. I'm an admitted klutz, but it's not crazy to think this could happen. Clearly, at another course- it did.
