The six-year-old was struck at a golf course in Utah, on Monday about 10am local time, and was rushed to hospital where she later died from her injuries, news site KSL.com reported.

A U.S. girl has been accidentally killed after her father smacked a golf ball into the back of the neck as she sat in a golf buggy while he played.

On impact with the club, the father's golf ball traveled in an unintended direction, and struck his child in the back of the neck, the lieutenant said.

The girl died around 9pm Monday.

Colledge said police are investigating but are not planning to pursue charges because it appears to have been a tragic accident.

Aria's uncle, David Smith, told the station that she often went golfing with her father, calling the little girl her father's "golfing buddy".

That is because banks were able to charge borrowers more interest without having to significantly increase payouts to depositors. Executives said lower long-term rates and any Fed rate cuts would cut into net interest income growth this year.

Aria was about 18 metres away from her father Kellen Hill when she was struck by the ball.

"It's an extremely tragic accident", Colledge added.

"She was his golfing buddy; she loved doing it and she would always be the one in the cart", said Smith. It was something that was really important to them and something they did all the time'. We've truly felt comforted.
