Police stop golf course brawl that involved weapons and resulted in broken bones......

Two foursomes were reportedly involved in a golf course brawl that involved weapons and resulted in broken bones. And if you guessed this ugly incident stemmed from slow play, you guessed right.

Police responded to the fight on Friday at Greenway Hall Golf Club in Stockton Brook (England), racing onto the course in golf carts to keep things from getting worse. However, a Staffordshire Police spokesperson said "bones had been broken" by the time they got there.

Four men were arrested on suspicion of assault, but weren't charged.

Woman arrested for cutting off husband's penis because he spent too much time playing golf......

A woman was arrested for allegedly cutting off her husband's penis, in part because he spent too much time playing golf, South Korea's Jeju Weekly first reported. The incident took place at an apartment in Yeosu on Aug. 26.

It has been alleged that a 50-year old wife has cut her husband’s penis off while he was sleeping.

The incident happened at an apartment in Yeosu, one of the southernmost cities in Korea, over the weekend.

The man was found after a neighbor heard a groaning sound coming from the apartment where the incident took place. He then visited the apartment and found the man lying on the floor.

In an interesting twist, neighbors told police that on the surface it seemed like the couple had a good relationship. This, of course, begs the question, why did this happen?

Well, during the investigation, Mrs. Kim, the wife, confessed that her husband had ignored her and been violent against her. She also added that he never gave her money to live while he spent a lot of time out and playing play golf.

The man in question is now in hospital in a non-critical condition.

The police will investigate more about her motivation and issue an arrest warrant.

Golf is no longer a crime, decrees China's Communist party......

Teeing off is not a crime, the Communist party of China has decreed, lifting millions of fairway fanatics out of the rough.

Banned by Mao Zedong – who despised the “sport for millionaires” – golf enjoyed a renaissance during the 80s and 90s only to be outlawed for the party’s 85 million members in 2015 as a result of president Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption drive.

Articles in the party-controlled media have painted China’s golf courses as cauldrons of profiteering where the palms of rotten officials are greased by favour-seeking business people.
