New brawl on a golf course. This time the blows flew to Canada. The last part of the brawl ended up on social media.

Golf, brawl

It all happened in particular in the Canadian town of Burnaby, home of the Riverway Golf Course & Driving Range.

At 10.40 on Saturday the request for intervention arrived at the secretariat for an unspecified episode of violence. Once on site the scene was quite eloquent: a woman was on the ground in front of the red golf cart. Someone was trying to help (perhaps) a second golfer on the ground when a third person in a blue shirt appeared from behind and kicked the "alleged" rescuer.

Followed by more screams and above all more blind beatings. According to the fragmentary information on the @nuclrgolf account, the issue should be linked to the game: one of the two teams would have thrown balls at the previous team.

He would do it more than once. Then the two flights would have crossed paths at a start and from words they would have moved on to hands. The management immediately notified the police and called an ambulance which, fortunately, returned to the hospital without any passengers.

The protagonists of fight club are between 39 and 50 years old.

The Rules of Golf are a set of standard rules and procedures by which the sport of golf should be played.

They are jointly written and administered by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body of golf throughout the world, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are the responsibility of the United States Golf Association.

An expert commission made up of members of the R&A and USGA oversees and refines the rules every four years. The latest revision is effective January 1, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in certain cases reduce penalties to ensure balance.

The rule book, entitled "Rules of Golf", is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status. In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise the competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and managing the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.
