    Golfer was in golf cart that plunged 75 feet off cliff

    SI.com link

    ALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) -- A 65-year-old golfer died Tuesday after his golf cart plunged 75 feet off a cliff and crashed into a road below, authorities said.

    The man teed off with three friends on the second hole of the Pala Mesa Resort Golf Course in northern San Diego County at around 10 a.m. and then got into his cart.

    The vehicle veered off the concrete pathway, traveled down a 25-foot embankment and went over the edge of a cliff, California Highway Patrol spokesman Tom Kerns said.

    The recently retired real estate agent from Irvine was ejected shortly before the cart hit the road beneath the cliff and died on impact, Kerns said. His name was not immediately released.

    No one else was involved in the crash.

    Investigators will inspect the golf cart for mechanical failures, Kerns said.

    whow.

    That is really too bad. I am curious as to the course layout, specifically hole #2. As how you can get in so much trouble by just being a bit off of the cart path.

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Money says a fence will be put in along that cliff within the next month.

    That's quite a penalty for a drive out of bounds.

    I sat on my joke waiting for someone to beat me to it. Then when nobody did, I went ahead and posted. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one w/ a sick sense of humor.

    it wouldn't have taken much to be off that cart path, then down the hill by looking at the pics..... So he may not have had any time.

    Now thinking about this and seeing the pics, there were two sets of clubs pulled from the wreck, where was the other player? did he jump off? was he still on the tee? Did he push the cart?

    If it was me, my ball would have been on the highway too, but I probably would have sucked it up and walked down there to get it. Some people are so lazy...

    Did he get to drop for hitting out of play?
