I don't know if you guys saw my post regarding our foursome getting attacked a few weeks ago, but following up on my post from the home page...
Ok, I'll try to keep it short. We were visiting Quail Hollow GC in McComb, MS. and a group of memebers had been really pushing my foursome since about 14. One "gentleman" in particular was being extremely rude. Anyway, we had just put the pin back in on the 338yd par 4 17th (reachable if you cut the corner over the water) when we hear the familiar ping of a teeshot. No "Fore!" no nothing. The ball lands right between me and J.B. and lodges in his cart. J.B. pulls the ball back out and was gonna send it back to them when I suggested that it might be a bad idea. He agreed and just chipped the ball into the water. The guy loses his mind and comes all the way to the 18th tee to settle up. He says he wants his $4 or a ball. J.B. tells him that he'll get nothing and like it. Then the guys starts swinging and catches J.B. off guard (because the guy is like 60 years old but crazy, big, and so mad that he is crying). Minnesota08 grabs the guy by the collar and the guy turns on him. A quick jab to the gut with his driver, a knee to the groin and the guy is still coming. Minnesota08 tries to kick him and his leg gets caught. The guy falls on top of Minnesota08 tearing Minnesota's ACL in the process. Finally, I grab the guy in a choke hold and get him off of Minnesota08. The guy's head is so big that I can barely get my arm around his neck. I politley ask him to settle down. After a few seconds of struggle and choked cursing, his face started turning purple so I released him very gently (Ok, maybe not so polite or gentle). He is still hopping mad. I offer him $6 for his trouble and he less than graciously accepts and that was about it. Well, except for the 80 year old Colonel Sanders look-alike that had gotten there by now and was inviting someone to hit him.
Obviously I am paraphrasing and leaving out some of the hilarity for the sake of brevity, but you get the idea. Minnesota08 has surgery next Wed., is out of work for 3 months, and has a court date on Sept. 30th.
Feel free to drop Minnesota08 a PM or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and wish him well. And if you were ever considering playing Quail Hollow GC... skip it.
