Can't we all just be friends? When it comes to the Rules of Golf in Pennsylvania, the answer is decidedly no.

Two golfers in Southwestern Pennsylvania ended up in the emergency room Sunday after a rules dispute on the golf course took a violent turn.

"The suspects were playing together at the Springdale Golf Course in South Union Township Sunday afternoon when 'they became embroiled in a heated debate over the rules of golf, specifically regarding water, on the 5th hole.'

The golfers managed to finish that hole and another before the argument 'reignited' on the 7th hole 'similarly involving rules, or lack of understanding of said rules.'"

Pennsylvania State Police are reportedly still investigating the incident and considering charges of aggravated assault.
