VIDEO: Golf course fight caught on camera

GOLDEN, Colo. -- A fight between golfers at the Fossil Trace Golf course in Golden, Colorado has gone viral after some fellow golfers captured the confrontation on camera. 

Obscene language can be heard throughout the 40 second dispute.

"I couldn't believe it was happening,” said witness and photographer Kevin Hu. He was with some golf buddies on the 10th hole when they saw some fellow golfers enraged on the 18th.

So why did golf swings turn into punches?

Hu thinks the group in the lead may be have moving too slowly for the other group following behind.

"It's a golf course man.  It's golf.  You like hit a ball into a little hole and drive around in a cart and you have a couple beers that's what you do."

The brawl was over seconds after it started, ending with a handshake. Police were never called to the scene. 

A Colorado conflict, scoring a hole in one on the internet.

 An official from the golf course sent this statement:

“As a premier golf course in Colorado, Fossil Trace does not condone the actions recently taken by a pair of players following play after the final hole.  The golf management was made aware of the situation shortly thereafter but those involved had already left without further incident.  The actions of these two players are certainly not indicative of our guests from around the world.  Our award-winning reputation for creating an extraordinary golf experience is on display each and every day at Fossil Trace Golf Club.”
