As some of you know I teach weaponless defense. Since this is posted in the Combat and Self Defense Section, I will stay on topic. Golf clubs can be very dangerous. The woods especially. Folks know metal coming fast at them is quite life threatening, but wood gives them a false sense of security. Let me tell you, the wood used is very dense and often capped with a metal plate. Do not fall victim to the false sense of well being that the attacker "only has a wood."
This video will show some basic defenses; several judo or jujitsu based. Note especially the morote gari.
EDIT: I have received several PMs so I will add this gear comment, for a quick one or two on one fights, I prefer the stiffer shank clubs. I have better control and can feel when I have made good contact on my target. If I expect to be fighting for a longer period or multiple attackers, I prefer a club with more shank flex. It is easier on the hands over the long haul, reducing tiring vibration. However, i must adjust my technique for the flex with the first swing and impact. I do like the recoil the shaft adds for my follow up swings. On avoid lower number irons as the can stick in the assailant if not careful and cause club loss. Club retention like gun and knife retention is key to surviving these confrontations.
Lastly, again this is serious, not some armchair internet wishful thinking combat fantasy; this is real life and as you can see here, you have little time to prepare your defense. Luckily, the assailant lost his weapon.
