write a brief paragraph addressing the question. Which is more likely, that a person is killed by lightning, or that a person is killed by lightning while playing golf in a thunderstorm?

I believe it would be while playing golf due to holding the metal golf club, acting as a lightning rod or attractor. However, I think there is supposed to be more to this as in statistical analysis? Am I right and if so, what else should I include?
