Should Have Taken the Drop

Cactus lined courses are helpful for keeping a golfer in the fairway and respectful of the surrounding environment. This guy had no business doing what he did and he got punished. In spades!

My friend, Bob Spletter, sent me this photo and accompanying text. He knows what it's like playing on desert courses. I'm sure there are equally funny photos of golfers in places they don't belong for reasons that truly defy rational thinking.

This happened on a desert golf course in the upper Scottsdale area.

Trying to hit the shot, [the golfer] fell backwards into the cactus. It took paramedics over 3 hours to pull cactus out before he could go in an ambulance to the hospital.

He should have taken a "drop."
