Injured Caddy Sues Italian Golfer For Half A Million Baht

A caddy from Chiang Mai is demanding 500,000 baht in compensation from an Italian man after being accidentally hit in the eye with a golf ball earlier this year.

Pairin Kantawongs, 56, together with the course director visited Mae Ping police station on Monday to file a complaint after negotiations over a settlement between her and the golfer failed.

She claims she is unable to work and suffers from blurred vision following the accident in January.

The Italian offered 5,000 baht towards her medical expenses saying she should not have been standing in front of him when he took his shot saying she was at fault, not him.

Thai media report that the case will end up in court as police have no power to prosecute or force payment as the injury was caused by an accident.
