Stay Aware Of Your Surroundings

The golf course doesn’t seem like an overly dangerous place, but it can be. A club, for example, can be dangerous in the wrong hands. A stray ball not only hurts to get hit with, it can cause a serious injury. It’s one thing that these Phoenix car accident lawyers deal with often.

Before you begin your own swing, take a look around you and make sure no one is in the way and that you won’t be hitting anyone.

      Originally signed by the Colt .45s at age 17, he made his major league debut as a 19-year old rookie and became only the second player in the modern era to play in more than 150 games as a teenager.

      Though he hit only .224 splitting time between first base and rightfield, Staub did start building a foundation that would turn him into an All-Star by 1967 when he finished fifth in the league with a .333 batting average.
