Utah golfer stabs man on golf course because of slow play

A Utah golfer frustrated by the slow play of a party in front decided to take matters into his own hands by using a knife to cut through the offending duffers.

After Lee Johnson and his wife asked if they could play through the slow putters in front and were refused, 61-year-old Johnson pulled out his trusty No. 3 penknife and reportedly sliced his way through — and not in a golfing sense.

A fight then broke out on the fairway before security from the clubhouse had to come and calm things down.

Payson Police Lieutenant Bill Wright told KUTV that Johnson, from Payson near Salt Lake City, was then wrestled to the ground by one of the men in the group. 

Johnson was charged with aggravated assault. His wife was not involved in the fracas and wasn’t charged or arrested. 

The victim was treated at a local hospital for non life-threatening injuries.
