Sure, watching Bama crush yet another National Championship—and realizing that you may in fact be playing checkers while Nick Saban is running a Queen's Gambit on everyone else—is not exactly a fun way to spend a week.
Golfers' Choice released their rankings of best collegiate golf courses in the country and The Walker Golf Course at Clemson University earned top honors. Which is something! Right?...
BIRDIE, EAGLE, ALBATROSS... CONDOR?!?
TIL that a 4 under on a hole is called a condor and requires a kind of luck that even lottery winners would still envy.
^^ Also, holy s#&%, condors are prehistoric monsters. ^^
Anyways, Mercury News could be one of the most infuriating sites EVER for those looking to avoid pay walls or email entries, so long story short...
Lake Chabot golf course in Oakland, CA has a par 6.

This writer (pointing to myself) is skeptical.

PGA SAYS ALOHA TO HAWAII
Goodbye to the Sentry Tournament of Champions and Hello to the Sony Open.
And frankly, I can't even talk about it because a polar vortex is bearing down on about 75% of the country. Lucky PGA bastards.
For a sneak peek at the action on Hole 1 - we've found this great "VR-style" tour that puts you DIRECTLY into the action. Enjoy.
Interesting nugget about Waiʻalae Country Club though… in 2004, a 14 year old Michelle Wie got a sponsor exemption to play in the Sony Open and ended up missing the cut by only one stroke.
She was 14…
When I was 14, I was rushing home from school to get a little Halo 2 action in before dinner, hijacking ghosts and taking down the Flood by any means necessary.
I... was not what one might call "popular" by "traditional definitions."

Golf is the best.
