Lightning is one of nature's number one weather killers.
I visited the Lonnie Pool Golf Course on N.C. State University's Centennial Campus to find out if golfer's knew what most people were doing when they were struck by lightning. They all thought playing golf was the answer, but fishing actually tops the list.
Since 2006, there have been 238 deaths caused by lightning in the U.S. 152 of those were during leisure activities, with fishing at the top with 26 deaths. Golf came in fourth with eight fatalities.
That lower number is thanks to more education and awareness.
Nick Dillman from the Lonnie Pool Golf Course told us that the USGA gives stickers and lightning safety tips that they put on the back of their golf carts and score cards to try and keep up the education as much as they can.
They also do their best to warn golfers of approaching storms, and ask them to return to the clubhouse until 20 minutes after the storm passes.
What would you do if you were stuck outside with no way to get inside during a storm? You should make yourself as small as possible, such as in the shape of a ball, so there is less of you for the lightning to hit.
