Golfer Killed After Cart Plunges 75 Feet Off Cliff (http://msn.foxsports.com/golf/story/6839910?MSNHPHMA)

Poor bastard.

FALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) - A 65-year-old golfer died Tuesday after his golf cart plunged 75 feet off a cliff and crashed into a road below, authorities said.

The man teed off with three friends on the second hole of the Pala Mesa Resort Golf Course in northern San Diego County at around 10 a.m. and then got into his cart.

The vehicle veered off the concrete pathway, traveled down a 25-foot embankment and went over the edge of a cliff, California Highway Patrol spokesman Tom Kerns said.

The recently retired real estate agent from Irvine was ejected shortly before the cart hit the road beneath the cliff and died on impact, Kerns said. His name was not immediately released.

No one else was involved in the crash.

Investigators will inspect the golf cart for mechanical failures, Kerns said.

I imagine at 65 years old there's not much bailing from anything...

Haha, I thought about posting that too.

He had enough of hearing that word and veered his cart right to the edge and off the cliff LMAO


I do feel for the old guy, he must have been having a heat attack. Apparantly he would have needed to pop it over a curb then go through 25 feet of brush before he hit the dropoff.

I don't want to start any blasphemous rumours, but I think that God's got a sick sense of humor...

Oh, and to add to the golf puns:

He should've got a ruiling before he drove off.

Too bad he didn't fall into a manhole. That would have been the ultimate irony.

I'm just guessing here, but I doubt it was being ejected from the cart that killed him.

Talk about adding insult to injury... I understand the rule about keeping your cart on the cart path... but to ask him to leave the course over it is a bit much.






Ok,, that one was stretch
