Double hit

A golfer was hit twice by other players' golf balls on one hole. Jim Meade was struck between the eyes as he searched for his ball in woods off the 16th fairway at Tilgate Forest golf club near Crawley, West Sussex. As fellow players helped him to his feet he was hit in the back by another ball. His injuries were not serious.
