Don't mess with the Turkish Golf Federation President!
By mustang6560 on 10/10/12
Ahmet Agaoglu, the president of the Turkish Golf Federation, allegedly assaulted a videographer during the first day of the inaugural Turkish Airlines World Golf Finals.
The alleged incident occurred as the world No2 [Tiger Woods] waited to tee off at the inaugural Turkish Airlines World Golf Finals. Cihat Unal, who works for a local news agency, pressed assault charges against Ahmet Agaoglu, the president of the Turkish Golf Federation who have arranged the biggest golf event ever to take place in the country.

Amid chaotic scenes on the first tee at the Antalya Golf Club, Unal's glasses were broken and he immediatedly attended a police station to file his complaint.

Agaoglu denied he headbutted Unal, saying: "He pushed me and I pushed him back and he fell over."
If the idea that there is "no such thing as bad publicity" is true, then I have a theory as to why the president of the Turkish Golf Federation, the man who is responsible for bringing Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, and six other top golfers to Turkey, would allegedly headbutt a member of the media — he wants to attract as much attention to his exhibition match as possible.

Why else would an adult, who is one of the highest ranking golf dignitaries in Turkey and who is trying to help Turkey win its bid to host the 2022 Olympic Games, allegedly assault a man who is just trying to do his job?
