Who says golf is a non-contact sport?

There's small SINCERITY of mirth
And LAUGHTER oft is but an ART
To drown the outcry of the HEART!"

I read this yesterday.

The guy must have really sent the shaft deep into the leg to puncture the femoral artery.
He's lucky he didn't bleed to death.....this artery is one of the largest in the body.

I don't know how well an artery can be grafted....as the report said.....this guy could lose his leg.

In 87 someone cut me off skiing and I fractured my femur in 1/2. It severed my sciatic nerve and now I have some paralysis in my right leg and use a artificial foot orthotic.
On the ski hill....they keep on checking my pulse not sure if my femoral artery was severed.

Happiness isn't getting what you want, it's wanting what you have.
