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.
