Golf Course Stabbing Victim Speaks
By mustang6560 on 3/14/12
Clay Carpenter, the man who was stabbed on the golf course some seven weeks ago, spoke for the first time about the injury that nearly took his life.
To refresh your memory, Clay was involved in a fight at Eagle Mountain Lake two months ago. His threesome was playing behind a slower foursome and the local marshal instructed his group to play through. During the transition, a fight broke out and Clay ended up getting stabbed in his femoral artery and nearly bled out. Luckily, he was rushed to the hospital in time to save his life but he may never be able to play golf again and there is a chance he may have to have his leg amputated in the future.
No one has been arrested and no charges have been filed in the case yet.

It is a shame that a crime like this has happened on the golf course. I always thought the most serious crime ever to occur in golf would be a fellow golfer fudging a little on his scorecard. Seems to me that it would be kinda easy to determine who the suspect is. Every time I go to play, the pro shop gets the name of at least one player in the group. The police should be able to locate the suspect with this information.
And another thing.... Who goes to the golf course with their knife? Sounds like the suspect is a thug.
I will be praying for Clay and wish him a very speedy recovery. May God bless him to prevent any amputation so that he one day could return to golf.
