Golfdigest - We’ve all been there — walking or standing peacefully on a beautiful golf course when the shrill of the word “fore” from a neighboring group sends us running frantically in the opposite direction. But, sometimes, you just can’t get out of the way in time. This man learned that the hard way, but thankfully, he looks OK (all things considering). According to golf.se, Joakim Boden was playing with a few friends when a golf ball came hurdling towards him and hit him directly on his head. “It sounded like a gun shot,” he said. Boden’s friends rushed him back to the clubhouse, where he sat with ice on his head until he was given the OK to drive home by a local health clinic, according to the article.
You know what’s weird? I’ve never heard of anybody actually getting hit in the head with a golf ball before. Never. I’m talking in all my years of playing golf with some of the worst golfers this earth has ever seen on some of the worst golf courses ever invented I’ve never seen or heard of it happening. I guess somebody was due and that somebody was Joakim Boden. And if I didn’t know better I’d almost say he seems pleased with himself in this picture? “Like that’s right motherfucker…took one right in the dome piece….still here golf ball”.
