New York Appeals Court says Golfer Had No Duty to Yell 'Fore'
The New York Law Journal is carrying a story about whether a golfer needs to yell "fore" when he/she hits a ball into an other golfer's direction. A Court of Appeals in New York says no - and that all golfer's "assume the risk" of being hit by another person's golf ball when playing. Or suggestion: always stand behind someone hitting the ball. In this case, the offending golfer was a doctor, and we all assume those folks are good at golf . . . .
