Wednesday afternoon, a line of thunderstorms that stretched from Massachusetts to Long Island came through Central Connecticut. An outing at Portland Golf Course was called off the course and the players watched from the safety of the restaurant as the storm hit. Not soon after, with many of the players looking on, the tee marker on the first hole took a direct lightening strike.
This spring, a course worker was killed on the same hole when the sprayer he was driving rolled over.
