PHOTOS: Lightning strikes at Eastpointe Country Club

Eastpointe CC lightning strikes

When lightning flashes in the sky, most golfers know to head inside immediately. Some, however, have a little too much bravado and try to wait out the storm. Hopefully these pictures will dissuade those folks who think hiding under a tree is a good idea in a lightning storm.

Lightning struck a large oak tree behind the 10th tee at Eastpoint Country Club a week ago, leaving permanent marks on the tree and doing some damage to the ground around it, including the cart path.
