It is a lame duck golf week. Most of the standard golf media types are digging out their end-of-year stories, top ten lists, year's best golf quotes lists etc. By the end of next week, that story will have changed in a big way.
Almost nothing is going on in the golf world right now, except a few small stories which oddly seem to all involve water on the golf course.
Swimming with the frogs
An SUV was found in a golf course pond at Man O' War golf course in Carolina Forest. Unfortunately, the driver was still in the vehicle.
The lengths people will go through to fish those $5 golf balls out of the lake are getting more and more extreme.
Another SUV story
In Texas another SUV found the water hazard as a 42 year old woman drove across an intersection and right into a lake at Lubbock Country Club.
Though the accident happened late at night, the woman driving was not found until 8-9 hours later.
Alcohol "may have been involved." Right.
Lend you a hand? Perhaps a whole arm?
At Irene Country Club in Centurion, South Africa, a human arm was found on a river bank. The left arm was found by a course employee and had all fingers intact.
At Hindley Hall Golf Course in England, a dog was rescued after falling through the ice on a frozen lake. The dog was reportedly "happy" to see his rescuers.
Based on all of the water stories from today, I'd recommend that unless you are a frog, you stay away from water hazards.
