Iss. 27 | The Toughest Golf Hole On Earth
Question 1 - Is the man pictured here, NFL legend, Larry Fitzgerald? Yes.
Question 2 - Is the green designed to look like the continent of Africa? Yes.
Question 3 - Is a helicopter the only way to reach this tee box? Yes.
Meet the infamous "Extreme 19th" par 3 located at Legend Golf & Safari Resort in the Entabeni Safari Conservatory, Limpopo Province, South Africa.
As this E60 segment explains, the hole was apparently created when the owner's friends were chilling at the top of this mountain for his birthday and wondered aloud - "why don't we rip a couple drives off this cliff?"
The rest is history.
The only pro to ever record a par on said hole is, you guessed it, Padraig Harrington. Fair enough, yeah I mean, fair enough.
"SLICING IS APPALLING"
Storming golf Tiktok like Tiger on a Sunday is @Britgolfdad with what one Breakfast Balls writer has described as "#oldmangolfgoals" and "wow did I really miss the boat on being English and 65+" and "when are they going to make this guy into an on-course golf therapy app?"
Here he explains how to fix a slice, while casually sipping tea and not giving two f&*$# about anything else.
FROM THE WILD WEST OF GOLF TECH...
ALL OTHER PUTTERS ARE NOW OBSOLETE
Follow us on a journey into a nostalgia-filled world of infomercials promising golf tech that will blow your mind (and course records!)
Today we present... The Zero Axis Hammer Putter.
Promising 100% sweet spot!—it appears the creators of the Zero Axis likely prototyped this putter by duct taping a ball pin hammer to the end of a broom. Laughing in the face of counter balancing and well, physics at large—these bad boys are TOUGH TO FIND.
Are they being safely guarded by all who purchased them in the 90's or have they all been snapped over a knee due to faulty technology? You decide.
Tiger Woods underwent his fifth back surgery this week, keeping him out of competition until at least the Masters.
Welp, are you happy HBO MAX? ARE YOU HAPPY!?! YOU DID THIS!!!
And now, here is some live footage of me first finding out the news.
(If not HBO MAX then maybe it was Toby...)
AIRBNB ALL STARS
GROTTO AND HOLLOW ANYONE?
We've been doing a little Airbnb browsing around some of our favorite courses and came upon this gem in Hurricane, UT.
This 7 bedroom, 23 bed behemoth is only 15 minutes away from Sand Hollow and has all the makings of a golf trip mecca.
The crown jewel would make even the late great Hugh Hefner peanut butter and jealous...
The grotto even has a little Game of Thrones vibes to it... you know nothing about laying up Jon Snow!
