A man in his 60s was struck by lightning at about 3.20pm yesterday.
He was playing golf at Laguna National Golf and Country Club with his friends when the incident happened.
Miraculously, he survived, albeit with burns to his head and hand.
Golfers at the club said that there was no lightning warning at the time of the incident, even though there was a slight drizzle.
The man's friends called an ambulance and he was sent to Changi General Hospital (CGH) for treatment.
The Laguna National golf course was shut for the rest of the day following the lightning strike, and all golfers were asked to leave the course.
In 2009, 57-year-old golfer Soh Lye Huat died of multi-organ failure after he was struck by lightning at Tanah Merah Country Club, which is situated near Laguna National Golf and Country Club.
Singapore has one of the world's highest rates of lightning strikes, thanks to its tropical thunderstorms.
