Country Club Employee Killed by Golf Ball
November 29, 2010
An employee at a Florida country club died after he was hit by a golf ball the day before Thanksgiving, police said.
The family of 42-year-old Maurice Hayden took him off life support on Thanksgiving Day, the day after he was struck in the head by a golf ball at the Mayfair Country Club in Sanford.
Hayden was performing maintenance on the second hole when he was hit by a tee shot.
The golfer responsible did not see Hayden and will not be charged in the incident.
Hayden was a Jamaican immigrant who began working for the country club after moving to Sanford three years ago.
