Golf News, Source, DENVER, Colo. (AP) -- A federal jury has awarded $2 million to a man struck in the head by a Wilson Sporting Goods golf club that came apart when his son swung it.

A lawyer for David Price, 48, said part of the award tops the amount allowed under Colorado law. The attorney added that Price still will likely collect about $1.1 million not including interest.

The jury awarded Price the amount Tuesday.

Price was injured while golfing in Longmont in 2002. According to testimony during trial, the club was a pitching wedge whose shaft was too narrowly ground and improperly fastened to the head.

A lawyer for Wilson Sporting Goods Company declined to comment.
