KARE 11's Randy Shaver fore-ked over $1,000 after dunking golf cart in water hazard


It's coming up on two years since Randy Shaver plunged a golf cart into a water hazard at a Minnesota golf course, and it's now come to light that it cost him more than a penalty stroke. 

It was June 2019 at the Randy Shaver Cancer Research Fund tournament at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove when the KARE 11 anchor somehow veered off the cart path and sank a golf cart in a pond. 

During his regular appearance on the 93X "Half-Assed Morning Show" Tuesday, Shaver said the oops cost him about $1,000. 

"It was about $1,000, and it's not that it's necessarily for the cart, it's the computer that's on the cart," Shaver said, acknowledging that the cart was equipped with "all the bells and whistles." 

Shaver, who has beaten cancer multiple times, joked (we think he was joking) that he'll have floatation devices on his cart this summer. 

This year's tournament will be held at Rush Creek on Monday, Aug. 2. Find out how to participate right here
