Retief Goosen Was Struck by Lightning

Retief, also known as “The Iceman” and “The Goose,” was struck by lightning in 1985 as a teenager. He was only four days shy of his 16th birthday when the incident occurred at Pietersburg Golf Club, where he was waiting out a rainstorm before heading to the course for golf. His friend, Henri Potgieter, who was walking 20 yards ahead, was knocked down, while Goosen was ‘ smoking, no clothes, burned black from head to tail.’ Fortunately, a doctor was present on the golf course when Potgieter went to ask for assistance.
