Doctors say a Florida man is lucky to be a alive after he was hit by lightning on a golf course. And he says that he is not going to stop golfing.

76-year-old Frank Sink was struck by lightning last Friday.

Two holes were burned into his eardrums when his Bluetooth headphones were blown out of his ears. Sink is now deaf but surgeons believe that his ears can be fixed.

Sink says nothing is going to stop him from golfing though.

According to the Weather Services, chances of getting hit more than once by lightning is nearly one in 14,000.
