a) The golfer's tee shot was not a shank.
b) "The unlucky golf reportedly returned..." GOLF?! Proof read before publishing, communists.
c) Leave "TMZ Sports" to the real semi-pros at deadspin.com

Glad the spectator is ok. That's dangerous when that happens. Unfortunately had a friend die after was hit in the head with a golf ball, was later in the day cause of brain bleeding that they did not know about. Good thing he went to hospital to get checked out. TMZ once again good at sensationalizing what could have been a tragedy.

This is the most poorly written post ever to be put up on TMZ. Please re-read your sentences and correct your many mistakes. This article doesn't even make sense.

Always wondered why these spectators herded in bunches right up against the fairway/green. That sport needs all the excitement it can get.

Serves 'em right for going to watch such a stupid pastime played by stuck-up airbags. Can't call golf a sport.
