Two men were injured Sunday afternoon when an argument about the rules of golf turned physical, police said.

The two golfers, ages 42 and 63, were playing at Springdale Golf Course in South Union when they became involved in a “heated debate” over the rules of the game, specifically regarding water, on the fifth hole, said state police at Uniontown.

The argument reignited on the seventh hole's fairway and “escalated quickly,” with both golfers sustaining injuries that required treatment at Uniontown Hospital, according to police.

Neither man was identified by police, who are investigating whether assault charges should be filed.
