Is this for real?!

Sometimes when I read the paper, I feel like I ought to be reading fiction. Reports like this just shouldn't be real.

A group of golfers complain that the group ahead of them are playing too slowly. Next thing you know, there's a golfer being rushed to the hospital because he hit another man's golf club with his head.

Shouldn't the story have gone more like this?:

"Hey there Larry, it seems that our group here is going at a bit more rushed pace than your guys. Would it be a problem if we played ahead of you?"

"George! Of course not! We're enjoying our leisurely pace, and wouldn't mind waiting while you gentleman play ahead of us."

And the beat goes on.
