When lightning strikes

Yesterday, while under the delay for the President's cup, we were shook with a close lightning strike. Lightning has struck two (that I know about), trees this year. Lightning is a very real and serious threat to personal safety that is being ignored more and more here on the golf course and the practice range.
The power of these strikes are phenomenal, and the debris that was scattered as the charge vaporized the moisture in the tree, is impressive.

Visit the briar ridge turfgrass Facebook page to see more photos of the strike.

Please remember to follow recommended safety procedures when on the golf course during threatening weather.
All clear,
