Chaos Unfolds At Indoor Golf Range After Flying Club Nearly Beheads Multiple People

The nature of golf means it’s a seasonal sport for the vast majority of people who play the game.

However, there are plenty of ways you can work on your skills when it’s too cold to actually head to the course.

That includes a few options that don’t even require you to leave your home, like breaking out a putting matt or trying to chip some balls into a glass across your living room carpet.

There are also some slightly fancier options, including the indoor simulators that allow you to “play” an actual round by hitting a ball at the screen and using the magic of technology to track where your shots land on whatever virtual course you’re navigating.

There are plenty of golfers who’ve exerted a fair amount of time, effort, and money to set up a sim in their garage or basement, but there are also a number of different places that offer players a warmer (and, in most cases, cheaper) alternative to the real thing.

X-Golf is a chain of locations boasting a number of indoor golf sims where you can reserve a slot, and while they tend to offer a pretty low-key environment, that was not the case for customers (and one bartender) who recently witnessed a pretty wild incident unfold.

The chaos in question came courtesy of a man who was taking a hack and managed to lose the grip on the club that subsequently flew over his shoulder, caused the group of guys behind him to duck for cover, and narrowly missed someone who was standing at the bar where it landed before seemingly breaking a glass and falling to the ground.

It’s unclear if the man who lost control of the club was asked to leave, but if I was in his position, I wouldn’t have needed anyone to order me out before fleeing as quickly as possible and never even thinking about coming back.
