Chiang Mai: Thai caddy wants half a million baht after foreigner hit her in the eye with a ball

exactly, unless he was deliberately targeting her or proven negligent there is no case to answer - it was an accident and should be covered by her employer - the golf course

 

golf balls can and do injure people - it's power for the course 

Part of what happens when one is an amateur like myself.  Army Golf, and shanks abound.  I have even hit myself as it struck the cart ahead on the path and ricochet back at me.  I believe that's why we are supposed to yell "Four", and instead of looking up we duck.

It is not a worldwide guarantee that the golfer will not be at fault.

Depending.

There are some places in the world that if the golfer hits a shot that may be in the line of a person who could be harmed and that golfer does not yell ¨fore¨, then the golfer could be liable.

Also, if the golfer was screwing around, not paying attention and hit an errant or pratice shot out of the normal round of play, they could be liable.

 

In any event, from the last sentence of the above article it appears the golfer or someone already paid out.  So, more then likely he accepted fault for her injuries.

A Thai golfer would have taken out the second eye for even thinking of it.
