Golf is not a contact sport. However, it doesn't mean it's not dangerous.
A caddie from Qutub Golf Course in Delhi, India died as a result of the brain injuries he suffered after being struck in the head by a golf ball.
"The patient remained admitted in the neurosurgery ICU for six days. He underwent an emergency surgery for removal of the blood clot within 24 hours of the admission. However, his condition did not improve significantly. He remained unconscious and succumbed to the injuries on Monday at 1.15am," said a senior doctor. He said the post-mortem report was yet to come.What an unfortunate situation. Based on the article in the Times of India, it seems as though the caddie was injured as a result of negligence, which is truly unfortunate. The man who hit the golf ball will face charges of "causing death due to negligence", which appears to be the equivalent of "manslaughter" in the U.S.
