Disc Golfer Pulls Flare Gun On Fellow Player Ruining Sport’s Chill Reputation

Photo: Wichita Falls, Texas

A man in Wichita Falls, Texas was charged last week with aggravated assault after threatening another man with a flare gun. While this alone is a strange weapon of choice, it gets even weirder as it happened on a disc golf course.

The altercation happened on hole 4 at the Lucy Park course, and the only thing we could imagine setting someone off like this would be an egregious foot fault. But even then it seems like a bit of an overreaction.¬†We’re more concerned as it gives the disc golf community a bad mark on an otherwise welcoming vibe.

Anyone ever seen a worse blow-up on the course? (h/t @bogeyboysworldwide)
