A Florida man has been arrested for manslaughter after he allegedly beat up an elderly man on a golf course in June. The Florida Golfer arrested was also elderly.  Just less so.

According to Fox News, 76 year-old Robert Edward Moore Jr. was charged with aggravated manslaughter on an elderly person. The victim was 87 year-old Dean William Zook. He died weeks after the confrontation as a result of the injuries he suffered.

The arrest affidavit was obtained by Fox 35 in Orlando. It said the incident started at the Glenview Country Club in The Villages on June 28. The victim accidentally hit a car that Moore thought belonged to him.  Moore approached the scene of a minor accident and accused the victim of hitting his car. The victim admitted to hitting the car with his vehicle and even asked to exchange insurance information with him. Moore then struck the 87 year-old in the jaw with a closed fist, knocking the victim backwards. Zook attempted to protect himself with his hands, but was not able to. Moore left the scene immediately after realizing the car did not even belong to him.

Florida golfer Zook was interviewed by deputies on scene, who noticed he began to slur and became unsteady on his feet.

He was transported to a local hospital where doctors discovered bleeding on his brain.

Zook passed away on July 16, the day before his 88th birthday. Authorities were able to identify Moore and arrest him after they discovered an article about him scoring a hole-in-one last November. In the pictures with the article, he was wearing the exact same shorts, shoes, and sunglasses as he was wearing during the incident with Zook.

Moore allegedly told deputies that he believed Zook was trying to flee the scene of the accident. He added that he was unaware of the victim’s age, although he did admit to knowing the victim was older and appeared to be frail.

Moore was arrested and taken to the Sumter County Detention Center. His bond was set at $30,000.

We assume he regrets the publicity he welcomed from his lucky golf shot.

The 9 Best Public Golf Courses in Southwest Florida: Ranked

The 9 Best Public Golf Courses in Southwest Florida

Fort Myers and Naples have some of the nicest golf courses in the country – the only problem is, to play these, you either need a rich friend who belongs at one of the courses, or you need to part ways with a couple hundred thousand to become a member yourself.

Don’t have either? You’re still in luck!   Southwest Florida has a litany of fun and challenging public courses open year-round to the average bloke. They may not offer the luxury amenities such as iced towels, golf carts outfitted with GPS and speakers, and Pro-V1 range balls, but the beers are just as cold and often times the cart girls are better looking!

I put these courses through a screening process and am basing this on certain criteria – first and foremost, they need to be open year-round for public play. After that, I judged them on: Layout (fun vs challenging), Condition and Amenities, Rates, Cart Girls (when applicable), and of course, the 19th hole. So, text your buddies, wash your balls, and tee up at these local favorites year round
