An 80-year-old man has been charged with shooting and killing his 51-year-old friend after a fight over putt-putt golf Tuesday night.

Charles Anderson, claimed that he was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed his friend, Scott Jeffries.  Mason County sheriff's investigators said Anderson and Jeffries were drinking and playing putt-putt golf in Anderson's mobile home just outside Shelton Tuesday night when Jeffries became angry that Anderson kept winning. The two got into a fight. “(Anders) was saying that (Jeffries) had attacked him,” Mason County sheriff’s Detective Bill Adam said. According to a probable cause affidavit, Anderson claimed that Jeffries hit him in the head several times. Anderson warned Jeffries to get away from him, according to the affidavit, but when he kept coming, Anderson pulled out a .40-caliber handgun hidden in his boot and shot Jeffries in the chest, killing him almost instantly. Police said Anderson "calmly" dialed 911 to report the shooting. “He waited patiently outside,” Adam said. “(He) Cooperated with deputies and detectives.” Mason County prosecutors filed charges of second-degree murder against Anderson,  but said they may pursue a lesser charge based on Anderson’s claim of self-defense. Prosecuting attorney Mike Dorcey told a judge Anderson could be charged with manslaughter instead of second-degree murder. After court, a woman identified only as a family member of Anderson's walked past reporters and briefly defended his actions.

“He wouldn’t have done this without a reason,” the woman said before walking quickly down the courthouse stairs.

Cameron Tringale is out of the PGA Championship and out more than $50,000, all due to a mistake on his scorecard. 

The Associated Press reported he said he may have whiffed on a tap-in putt and signed for an incorrect score.

Tringale said, according to a Bleacher Report article, that he is not sure if he addressed the ball.  

Tringale spoke to PGA officials because he thought the stroke should have been recorded, and that he signed an inaccurate scorecard, so he should be disqualified.

The miss would have added one stroke to his round, tying him for 36th instead of 33rd place according to Bleacher Report.

Not only will he lose the $53,000 in prize money earned, The Associated Press reported that he will also lose 37 FedEx Cup points.

Many are citing his integrity on Twitter for reporting the error which could have given him his best year in his pro career.
