Golf dangerous? How unsafe a proposition could it be to play a round of 18 holes swinging the sticks? I guess one would ask 65 year old Edwin Payne; however, his golf cart veered off a pathway at the Pala Mesa Resort Golf Course and plunged 75 feet off a cliff. Edwin Payne died on impact. WOW, this sound more like a cartoon of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner than golf. Who could ever have dreamed this happening teeing off from the first hole and preparing to have a nice and relaxing day on the lynx? How tragic.
