Golfer Burns Down Course...By Swinging Club

Wow.  A man in Irvine, California had hit a ball into the rough this past Saturday.  Looking at the situation, determining his muscle memory, the man studied the lie and judged how to hit the ball.  Grabbing his club, he took a swing and...boom.  The man, whose name is being withheld, apparently hit a rock, which then caused a spark, which, you guessed it, caused a massive fire.

The rest from Yahoo!:

IRVINE, Calif. – Forget "Fore!" "Fire!" was the cry of the day for a golfer whose off-target swing sparked a 12-acre blaze in Southern California. The golfer at the Shady Canyon Golf Course in Irvine landed a shot in the rough Saturday.
On his next swing, his club snagged a rock, causing a spark that lit the rough ablaze and eventually attracted 150 firefighters to the scene.
Fire officials say the fire burned through the rough, into vegetation next to the course and over two dry, brushy hillsides.
No charges were filed against the golfer, whose name was withheld.

Shouldn't have been using the controversial "flaming balls"
