Earl addressed the ball and took a magnificent swing. Somehow, however, something went wrong and a horrible slice resulted.
The ball went onto the adjoining fairway and hit a man full force. He dropped.
Earl and his partner ran up to the stricken victim who lay unconscious with the ball between his feet.
“Good heavens” exclaimed Earl, “what should I do?”
“Don’t move him” said his playing partner. “If we leave him here, he becomes an immovable obstruction, and you can either play the ball as it lies or take a free drop.”
