Still Thinking About Taking Up Golf?

 

Take the penalty (Hole 16 Oak Crest Golf Club, Florida) Get your Tums ready ... Not for the weak stomach.


Except for a misinterpretation of the rules (lateral hazard: one stroke) the lesson seems accurate. ...... the ball was in the pond on Hole 16 at Oak Crest Golf Club/Florida.

......it was a brand new Titlelist with the Verso logo on it and he didn't want to lose it OR take the two stroke penalty as he was already behind in points!  

 He reached in to retrieve the golf ball . . . 

NEXT THING HE KNEW HE WAS COVERED IN BLOOD.

HIS FELLOW GOLFERS   WATCHED HIS ARM LEAVING WITHOUT HIM.

MERCY FLIGHT TO THE HOSPITAL.
HUNTED FOR THE ALLIGATOR

GOT HIM

KILLED HIM

SAVED HIS ARM, BUT STILL COST HIM TWO STROKES,
LOST THE BALL AND RUINED THE REST OF THE DAY FOR HIS FRIENDS!
 


Thanks Hal

  1. Does his handicap cover the 2 strokes?

  2. You can bet he'll carry a .45 iron in his golf bag from now on.

  6. The number one reason I don't golf, beside it seems silly to hit a ball and then have to go and chase it down...

  13. I have never thought of taking up golf. and this made me never think about it more.

    up here we only would have to deal with the Canadian CobraChickens, but they're mean enough.

Put it here ... I can't wait to read it. I have the Captcha turned OFF but blogger insists it be there. You should be able to bypass it.
