Fairways Lightning Strike

There's a reason why you're asked to get off the golf course when there's the threat of lightning. Here's a demonstration of that reason.

A nasty storm made its way through Fairways Golf Club in Orlando on June 12, with lightning striking the fifth fairway and, in the process, doing some damage to the ground. 

So next time you slump when hear that weather siren on the course, remember this picture.
