KENT, Wash. A golfer has been sentenced to 1 1/2 years in prison for bashing another player over the head with a 6-iron during a fight over slow play.

Nicholas Jay Shampine, 34, had been convicted of assault in King County Superior Court.

At Thursday's sentencing, he said he was sorry, but also claimed he was defending his brother in the clash a year ago between two groups of golfers.

The victim, James Compton, 45, says he still has memory loss and headaches.

Which is exactly why I refuse to play the game without a helmet...
