Since lots of people will hit the links, I have decided to take up the game again. After all, I need to learn some new and clever curse words.
Here are some interesting tidbits for you.
* Every year golfers use about 800-million golf balls and $630 million is spent annually on them in the U.S. alone.
* Way back in 1457, golf was banned in England because it was considered a distraction from the serious pursuit of archery.
* 50% of adult men have played golf while intoxicated. (But really is there any other way to play?)
Speaking of golf, thanks to Jim Prentice and Steven Ames, who just raised over $200K for children’s charities.
