    Did people do dumb and inhumane things before video was prevelant?

    That's going to be a very costly "birdie."

    That's really why you don't golf?

    Did he do the golf-ball-off-the-head-of-the-club trick 50 times before nailing the hawk like a fungo, a la Tiger?

    If he swung only once, I'd be impressed with his accuracy. That it took him 10 times shows why he's on the Nationwide Tour, I suppose.

    The worst thing I ever hit was a flagstick 50 yards down range while warming up for a Futures Tour pro-am event. Problem was the ball that hit it came off of a shanked drive, rattling the flagstick like one of those old-school doorstops. Some pros turned around, saw me, and started to laugh. I responded with a genteel tip of the cap.

    I don't golf because I've just never had an interest in it.

    I don't golf because my first newspaper boss tried to use it as a way to turn me into his buddies' whipping boy. Buncha elitist assholes. Some good people in golf, but it seems to have more than its share of egomaniacal jerks. So I stay away. I'm sure I'm not missed.

    Well don't start now. When this gets out, hawks will be attacking golfers left and right.
