When I was younger, I played golf. (never very well) I had a horrible slice. If I went and took a lesson, I’d hit it straight and perfectly, unintentionally making it so the Golf Pro (Claude Roberts) couldn’t help me.
The pictures above show the clubhouse. In the top picture, the first tee is to your right. (I found these pictures on the internet, HERE.) See those huge windows? The bottom picture shows a view from inside the clubhouse, looking at the course. These windows are HUGE, maybe 4×8 feet or bigger.
I bet you think I’m going to tell you I sliced a golf ball and broke one of those windows. I didn’t. Anybody can break a window, but only I can slice a ball and hit the post IN BETWEEN two of those windows. It bounced off and did no damage. It was truly a one in a billion trillion zillion gazillion shot.
Now, there is NOT a bad design to this golf course. It is literally impossible to hit those windows from the first tee, unless you have a beyond humanly possible slice, like I did. But I tell you what, I’ll never forget the feeling as that ball curved towards those huge windows…. .
See that pond in the background of the bottom picture? I have also skipped a golf ball across that. Again, unintentionally.. And ended up with a pretty decent shot.
I haven’t golfed in years, I sold my clubs when I moved down here. You’re welcome, the world is a safer place for that.
AND that’s my Flashback Friday. Have a good weekend!!!!
