Par for the course: O-72

We had our annual Young Life golf tournament this week. It was a glorious day spent on the fairways watching for a hole in one. That was the only job I had, sitting at hole 17 to see if someone got a hole in one to win a Lexus. No one did. Getting two hole in ones in a round of golf is a 1:67 million chance. I should take up golf, good life sport.

-The World’s Longest Golf Course is the International Golf Club in Massachusetts. 8325 yards long with a long par of 77. Par for the course is generally 72 for those of you who don’t follow golf. It also has the largest green that is 28,000 square feet.
-Mint Juleps are sipped most amongst the clubhousers at the Masters than any other tournament
-Apparently it takes 18 shots to finish a fifth of whiskey. Thus the reason for 18 holes on a golf course. Do you ever even make it to hole 18 is that is the plan of attack?
-The World’s highest golf course is the Tactu Golf Club in Morococha, Peru, which sits 14,335 feet above sea level at its lowest point. Not certain of the highest point, but altitude sickness is a possibility.
-There are three golf balls on the moon.
-One must play 10 rounds of golf in order to have a handicap
-The longest hole in the world is the 7th hole (par 7) of the Sano Course at the Satsuki Golf Club in Japan.  It measures a long 909 yards. 9 football fields!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO
-$602 million dollars is in the golf ball market. Could be a good place to start these days
-There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball.
