Dangerous for children


Golf is a more dangerous sport for children than riding horses, skateboarding, or soccer, according to a report in the British medical journal Lancet.

"In the hands of children playing unsupervised, golf clubs are potentially lethal weapons," doctors at Newcastle upon Tyne General Hospital in England wrote in the journal.

The most publicized accident involved Prince William, 8-year-old son of Prince Charles. William suffered a head injury after being hit by a friend swinging a golf club at his school three weeks ago.
