New York Court Legalizes Shanked Golf Shots

OH, HE GOT ALL OF THAT ONE

Congratulations, hackers. You're game has officially been legalized in New York state! It's true. New York's Court of Appeals today upheld a lower courts' dismissal of a personal injury lawsuit filed by a doctor against his golfing partner after he was struck in the eye by a shanked golf shot. His golfing buddy, the lawsuit said, did not yell "fore!"

A shank is considered by golfers to be the worst shot in all of golf. It's worse than a whiff, which is when you swing and miss the motionless golf ball. After all, a whiff, by definition, cannot injure another golfer. The shank of the club is where the clubhead meets the hosel. In most cases, it causes the ball to fly off the hosel at a 90 degree angle to where you were aimed, thus surprising, and sometimes seriously injuring, your golfing buddy.

Welp, now it's legal in New York. And you don't even have to yell "fore!"
