Life-threatening Sport!

In May 1995, on the golf course in Lyon, France, Mr. Jean Potevan, losing the game from his friend, angrily threw a bag of golf sticks in to the lake. The very next moment he remembered that his car keys were in that bag. Dressed, he jumped into the lake after the bag that had sunk to the bottom. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Potevan drowned. What were his last words?

 "Here's the keys!"

Something similar happened to Al Capone, the famous American gangster, on the golf course "Olympia Fields” in Chicago. Annoyed with the way he hit the ball, Al Capone (1899-1947) threw a stick on his bag, in which he carried his other sticks. A shot was heard and Capone realized that he was wounded. How?

In the bag, for his own protection, he always carried a gun.
