Man stabbed by golf club during argument on course

EAGLE MOUNTAIN LAKE, TX (CNN) - A Friday afternoon round of golf, ended on the 13th green, with an urgent call for help.

Two groups had converged near the hole at Eagle Mountain Resort, according to Mike Rolf, who was playing that day. A group of three was supposed to move past his slower group of four.

Rolf said he'd already moved well past the green. He had stopped, had his phone out to check messages when he heard a commotion in the area he just came from. He looked back at the green and saw two guys down on the ground. He turned his cart around, and headed back to where they were fighting."

Rolf said he pulled up to something he never would've expected on a golf course. The other players told Rolf the man fell on a golf club.

Investigators haven't determined yet if it was a fall, or the fight, that injured 48-year-old Clay Carpenter.

One man said, "we think in the scuffle a golf club inadvertently stuck him in the leg."

Carpenters wife said he left that green in critical condition.

He's home now, but wouldn't talk about the fight.

So far, no one has been arrested or charged.
