I golf. Poorly (meaning I’m always playing the cheapest round I can find). Badly (meaning I’m really bad at every aspect of the game). Irregularly (meaning every definition of the word that could possibly be applied). Golf perplexes me, vexes me. And then golf has rules like this:
Anthony Kim was disqualified for using an altered driver. He accidentally hit a sprinkler head, bending the driver slightly, then used the club.
This is why golf confounds me so. You damage your stick and get booted for using abused equipment. Ejection for performance-de-enhancing substances. What a strange game.
Oh yeah, the story leads with a bit about some kids digging up home plate from Yankee Stadium II and moving it to the new place across the street. But the bent-driver thing was more interesting to me.
