Wow, your eyesight must be really good to be able to discern this man's nationality from so far away. Myself I might have guessed he was an American, or perhaps El Salvadoran, or Argentinian even. I guess you figured it out when he started speaking "Mexican" though, huh?
Years ago, while playing the old layout at Veterans Park in Arlington, Tx. I threw what looked to be a very good drive. It barely caught the underside of a lower branch on the top of the flight plate, just enough to redirect it adding to it's normal hyzer flight. Off of the left side of the fareway was a family just setting up for a picnic, to which grandma was walking around looking at stuff on the ground. You know what happens next, my Cyclone clips her in the forehead, just above her left eye, knocking her to the ground. I dropped everything and ran as fast as I could to her and told her not to try and get up. Although it was about a hundred and fifty feet from the teebox, it still left a mark without, thankfully, breaking skin. Her family saw what was taking place and rushed over to asked what happened. I tried to explain that it was an accident and offered any help I could. They refused and left before we got to the next teebox. The rest of my round really blew.
From that day on, I always yell before I drive and make sure I get some kind of eye contact, even though it doesn't always seem to register with pedestrians. I've never hit anyone else so it works better than just throwing without warning.
We must remember we're not the only park users and try to avoid unfortunate incidents like mine.
