Cliffs can be treacherous... and beautiful.
Another Reason To Keep It In The Fairway
By Kickntrue on 5/5/10
A 66 year old golfer from New Zealand discovered there are better reasons to keep your golf ball in the fairway than just better scores and stats.
A New Zealander gave new meaning to the golfing term 'hazard' when he fell from a cliff while searching for his ball at a course near Auckland.
The 66-year-old man sustained serious injuries but was in a stable condition in Auckland City Hospital after falling more than 100 feet (30 meters) onto seaside boulders, the New Zealand Herald newspaper reported Wednesday.

The man had been playing alone and the accident was not discovered until staff discovered his abandoned golf cart, then saw an arm protruding from bushes among the rocks at the cliff's base Tuesday afternoon.
Also a good reason not to golf alone. I can't believe the dude lived!

@netmonkey- when you're as dedicated as i am to my journalism you don't look for reasons to use an image (you find an image and make a story fit it).

Relevant and informative, this image evokes a deep feeling of empathy within me for the bikini clad woman who fell off that cliff... that is what this story is about right? I barely read it.

If I saw that out on the course I would most definitively hook my ball to the left and spend the next hr looking for it ;)
