Scottish golfer has run-in with hotel chandelier


KILLENARD, Ireland — Marc Warren was back playing in the Seve Trophy tournament on Friday, the morning after he injured himself by accidentally smashing a chandelier with a golf club in his hotel room.

The Scotsman said he tried a practice swing with a 5-iron in his room Thursday night and hit a glass chandelier which smashed into pieces over him.

Warren was taken to a hospital where he received stitches for a deep cut in his abdomen. He also had minor cuts on his arms and head.

“There was plenty of blood and a towel I held to my stomach was covered when I arrived at the hospital,” Warren said. “But the only thing that hurt was the scratch on my head. I feel fine about playing today.”

Mr. Warren may be hurting in the wallet also. Hotel owners, my late father was one, don’t appreciate customers destroying hotel property.

Memo to Marc- Stick to practice putting on hotel rugs.
