Two golfers playing a Pennsylvania course left in handcuffs after an argument over game rules led to a fight in which one was hit with a golf club.

State police said Roger Lee Harris, 63, and Bryan Bandes, 42, were playing with three others at the Springdale Golf Course near Uniontown when an argument broke out over what constituted “casual water,” The Associated Press reported. The pair settled the dispute on the 5th hole, but resumed arguing two holes later.

Police said Mr. Harris ultimately struck Mr. Bandes over the head with a 3-wood before the two began trading punches, according to AP.

The two were arrested and taken off the course.
