Answer

$0.00000101$

Work Step by Step

We know that $probability=\frac{number \ of \ good \ outcomes}{number\ of\ all\ outcomes}$. Therefore $probability=\frac{304}{300000000}≈0.00000101$. Therefore this suggests that the golfer should look for a shelter, because him being struck by thunder has a much larger probability in an open golf course.
