FAYETTE COUNTY , Pa., Aug. 4 (UPI) -- A couple of Pennsylvania men who were playing a round of the "gentleman's game" allegedly acted like anything but after getting in a brawl following an argument about golf rules.

Two men were hospitalized and state police were called after a dispute at the Springdale Golf Course in Fayette County turned physical.

The unnamed golfers, aged 42 and 63, got to the fifth hole and became "embroiled in a heated debate over the rules of golf, specifically regarding water," the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

They continued arguing until they reached the seventh fairway. After that, things "escalated quickly" and both men ended up with injuries that required treatment.

The argument was centered on rules, or "lack of understanding of said rules."

It's possible that assault charges will be filed.
