I’m the world’s worst golfer; I own that title. This is exactly why I don’t play. I’d do this to myself for being so fricking bad at it.

The man later consulted the Westwynd Golf Course pro to correct his slice.

“Police officer: how many times did you hit him?

Golfer: Put me down for a five....”

Injured golfer: Are you sure? I counted six?

(That’s what started it in the first place).

“outside Detroit.”

Funny how two words define the entire incident and explain the makeup of the ‘partners’.

So “Ping” is a one word joke in this thread.

Tiger Woods wife is probably thinking of the opportunity costs of the 2010 incident.

Tried that. The Lady of the Lake threw them back. Eventually gave them away at a garage sale. No buyers, but at least didn’t have to pay to get rid of them. No tears when they left for their new home either. Relaxing sport, my big white hairy butt....

That doesn't stop obama.

Get up and 'play' anyway! Now imagine how bad it would be if you loved the 'sport' and ordered not to play....Lott, who lives about a mile from the golf course and ordered not to play golf. Life is good, go play!

I’d rather take my Barrett 82A1 to the 1,000yd range and have some fun.
