A Westchester gym teacher has filed a lawsuit after being struck in the head by an errant golf club thrown by a man having a rough day on the links at Dunwoodie Golf Course in Yonkers, according to a New York Post report.

Mary Touhey, 55, a gym teacher in Yonkers is reportedly suing 33-year-old Manhattan resident Daniel Schapiro after she allegedly suffered a broken nose last September when the latter threw a golf club in anger following a bad shot.

According to the report, Touhey and her golf partner were paired with Shapiro and his partner to make a foursome. She alleges that Schapiro was having a bad round, got frustrated, swung his club and it struck Touhey in the face, breaking her nose.

No charges were pressed against Schapiro, according to the report, though Touhey has been seeing a neurologist for the injury and is suing for unspecified damages. The Post report said that Schapiro declined comment outside his penthouse apartment in Manhattan.
