A member of one of Hong Kong's most exclusive golf clubs is suing a fellow player after being hit on the head by a wayward tee shot. In a writ filed in the High Court on Tuesday, Alan Deakins claims he suffered unspecified injuries when he was 'struck on the head by a golf ball whilst ... walking up the 13th fairway' of the Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club on December 23. The ball was allegedly launched from the 14th tee by Humphrey Leung Kwong-wai, the chief executive of microchip design company Solomon Systech. Mr Leung is currently away on business, according to staff at the company, based at the Hong Kong Science Park. Mr Leung was a recipient of a Young Industrialists Award in 2001. Damien Laracy, Mr Deakins' solicitor, said he was unable to provide any further information regarding the incident at this moment. It is not the first time a golf-ball-related injury in Hong Kong has led to litigation. In 1999, the Court of First Instance awarded almost HK$89,000 to a caddie at the Hong Kong Golf Club who was struck in the mouth by a shot from a golfer she was helping.
