Friday Flash Fun. Warning: goes on forever. I think.
Hunter S. Thompson has an idea for Bill Murray. I'm not sure it would check out with the NRA's Gun Safety Rules
Other people have been creative
when it comes to shooting things with shotguns. The combination of shotguns
has even been done before, although in a very different way.
Fire at will!
Tiger Woods in Dubai

Thanks to Andre Tolme,
now you will know that the capital of Mongolia is Ulaanbaatar, and that a par of 11,880

Ever hear of Fred Funk, Tom Lehman, or Jim Furyk? All three are currently tied
with a certain female golfer
who posted a +1 score today.
The question is this: should female golfers be allowed to qualify and participate in the PGA? I mean, they already have their own league
Actually, the same argument was used back in 1947
is the website of choice for Martha Burk and the NCWO's "Hall of Hipocrisy", where they name the CEOs of companies who are members of Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters golf tournament. Burk has protested that Augusta should be banned from holding the Masters because they have not let women into their membership. So far, the Masters will have no corporate sponsorship in its broadcast on CBS. A few execs and pols have exited the ranks of members. Will more happen in the coming months to open the doors to women?
On a side note, you can check out theburkstopshere.com
where you'll find a collection of links to websites protesting Martha Burk.
Women's group asks CBS to drop The Masters golf tournament
With all the issues facing women today in America, I have a hard time believing that getting a female member into the Augusta National Golf Club will help the cause of women's rights. It now appears that the National Council of Women's Organizations are also going after the employers of club members. Have they never heard of the old saying: "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." Wouldn't fighting for equal pay in the workplace for women do more for the average female than getting female members into Augusta National Country Club?
Augusta National defends its membership polcies
in the face of opposition from the National Council of Women's Organizations. Augusta is the annual host of the Masters and does not count any women among its 300 members. Does the NCWO have any business telling a private organization how it should structure its membership?
It's ok to "steal" golf balls again.
Lesson 37.5 para. ii - Comedy Camera Angles.
This image demonstrates how when taken from the correct angle, photographs of perfectly innocent behaviour could be deemed as... well.... different
you've got par!
in my part of the world (Belgium, six points...) it's friday which can only mean one thing... Friday wear and virtual mini golf... As always, hole 18 is the most difficult.
Golf course: men only
PGA golfer Fred Couples is helping build a golf course open only to men. Is this any different from a womens-only gym, or more sinister?
You have a better chance being struck by lightning.
Or do you? Well it may depend on who you are, where you are, and whether or not you play golf.
Another fun way to waste time on the web.
Electrotank.com went live today. Their minigolf game had been available in beta form for a week or two, but the last 9 were disabled. Now they're all there except for #18, and the dreaded hole 8 has been moved to 17. There are other games too, and a "vision" statement, the first item of which is that they will "Provide a place where people can go to play free high quality online games. " Sounds good to me! Flash plug-in required...
Supreme Court gives golfer Casey Martin the keys to the cart.
Can a private organization be forced to allow something it says is against the spirit of the rules of it's competitions? Will we see Casey play anytime soon? Who else will benefit from this ruling in golf and other sports?
to life for fraud? Crime should be punished, but this seems somewhat harsh when there's murderers, rapists, etc. on the loose
Historic as the moon landing?
No man or woman in history has ever held all golf's major championship titles concurrently. Is Tiger Woods' sweep of the Grand Slam an achievement of epic proportion, or just a blip on the radar of personal success?
CBS to cease broadcasting canned bird songs during golf tournaments
-- CBS has an interesting track record these days for "enhanced reality". Remember back when they were inserting their logo into live video from a Dan Rather special, making fake CBS billboards
in Times Square without disclosing they were fake? Are they still doing that on "The Early Show"? I haven't seen it in a while.
A site "dedicated to examining the possibility that God is walking the earth as a 21st century, multi-ethnic, superstar golfer and whether that is any more or less likely than God coming in the form of a first-century, Jewish carpenter."
Big Business vs. the little guy.
After you read the story, go check out the Website
of the pig farmer. The only question I have is: Can they find a Judge who doesn't golf?
tells us where to find the best windminds and clowns' heads on the East Coast. Also kinda neat is the British Minigolf Association
