Tour Pro Files Suit Over Wrist Fracture


Tour pro Richard Johnson has filed a lawsuit against the Buy.Com's Dayton Open, the city of Centerville, Ohio, and The Golf Club at Yankee Trace for a wrist fracture he incurred at the 2001 Dayton Open.
Johnson fell on a bridge near the 15th green and sustained the injury, according to reports. He has not played since, says his attorney, Vicent Antaki of Cincinnati.
The suit is for $1 million in punitive damages and more than $25,000 in compensatory damages for his injuries and for his wife's loss of consortium. Johnson's injuries 'to his left wrist, arm, neck, back and other parts of his body' resulted in 'extensive medical treatments, great pain and suffering, humiliation, anxiety, lost wages, and the loss of enjoyment of life,' the lawsuit claims.
