The Gentleman’s Game

The sleepy town of Edmond, Oklahoma was the scene of a donneybrook at the Kickingbird Golf Course, when a solo golfer asked to play through a group of four men.

The single, a 55-year-old man, told police that when he approached the group and asked to play through, one of the members of the foursome, 67-year-old Eddie Aday took exception, telling the victim he worked at the course, which the victim didn’t care about. They then got into an argument, and the victim claims Aday got ‘nose-to-nose’ with him. The victim, a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, took a step back because he gets very nervous when other are in his personal space. When Aday approached him again, things turned violent.

“It escalated to the point that the victim was being hit in the head with a putter and the top of his head and the front of the head, and then another member of that foursome hit him from behind,” said Jenny Wagnon of the Edmond Police Department.

To make matters worse, another member of the foursome, 72-year-old William Hickman, joined in on the donnybrook and began hitting the victim on his buttocks and legs.

Mr. Aday scores a hole in one… in the single golfer’s skull. From the looks of things, Kickingbird is the only thing which didn’t happen to this poor bastard; he was certainly kicked everywhere else.
