    That happened in Sparks nevada last year too. Guy got a little of course and hit a rock and sparked a fire. It gets pretty darn dry out here in the west and doesn't take a whole lot to get a big brush fire going.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Watch a Titanium driver, if there are small pebbles in the ground it strikes during the swing they throw a lot of sparks.

    As far as a swing in the rough starting a fire --- possible.

    Much more probable is a golfing smoker throwing his butt down to make a swing. Starting a fire and using the sparking club idea as an excuse.

    Now I am not calling anyone anything with this but I have played a lot of golf and the ratio of smoking golfers to sparking club swings is about

    298,738,641 / 1

    Draw your own conclusions.
