Homeless Man Beaten With Golf Clubs
By mustang6560 on 4/28/11
We've all been there once or twice before. You miss that give-me putt on hole 7. You duff your tee shot into the wrong fairway. And the subsequent angry makes you want to take your golf club and hit someone/something with it.
Indianapolis metropolitan police said three men wielding golf clubs beat a homeless man under a bridge on the Near Southeastside last night.Golf is a barbaric sport played by gentleman. Oh wait, never mind, that's rugby.
But, seriously. A golf club would make a good weapon, especially if someone broke into your house and you didn't own a gun. But, it's a shame when you actually hear about someone using a golf club to hit another person in a crime. I just hope for the sake of the victim the perpetrator wasn't using a game-improving iron. Have you seen a modern looking cavity back? It's like hitting a golf ball with a shovel. Talk about taking a lickin'.

-1 for Nathan for one of the most insensitive articles oob has ever seen. Wow... I'm embarrassed to be his mentor.
I've been hit on the top of the head on a backswing by my cousin. It hurt so bad i thought i was going to black out, and it was just a tap at the top. one of those clench your teeth and hold the spot that was hit as hard as you can until the pain goes away a minute later. I couldn't imagine surviving an actual "swing" for the purpose of hitting. I think it would be enough to just make you want to die so it stops hurting.
i actually do have my Eidolon 60* wedge as my anti-theft-deterrent. It is sitting right next to my bedroom door. BRING IT! unless you got a gun...
I think we've had the "what golf club is best for home-defense" discussion before. I still maintain that a blade-style putter is best, as it allows the most options for maximum damage.
@banker85: Hand to God, I have my old retired 56 degree vokey by my bedroom door.
@mjaber: when in a situation where you need to carve out a divot from an intruder's head I really think you need some loft.
Don't be an idiot, have a gun handy, and if someone breaks in your house, don't stop shooting them til it goes click click click.
Never use your golf clubs as a weapon. They will end up being held as evidence by the police. Use a friends clubs instead!
+1 GreggScott. +10 if they're the clubs of someone you play for money against.
I have a 5-iron in the trunk, simply because I found it on the road and picked it up with the idea of repairing it. Somehow it's still in my trunk a year later.
A few people that take early morning walks out here in the Mojave carry a golf club, tho most settle for a stick. The occasional belly-putter is a bit much tho.
@legitimatebeef... true, but a blade-style putter has a better chance of maximum penetration into said intruder's skull. It will also be more effecitive if it is necessary to use a forward-thrusting motion (like a spear) to remove teeth or force the nasal bones into the brain.
We don't own a gun at home or work. Why when we have so many golf clubs?!

Intruder in tight spaces? I prefer swinging my Sig 226.
With a slice as bad as mine its essential.
