What's the world's smallest sand bunker?

Either way, I am sure my ball will find a way to fall into it.

Unfixed divots, large ball marks, deep footprints, even frickin' monkey-made holes on the fairways--my golf ball seems to find them like a magnet lately.

Low-hanging tree branches seem to catch my golf balls also.

I added three unecessary strokes to my score in a match recently just getting through a fairwayside forest!

A Condor has only been recorded 4 times in history, only once on a straight drive (for a record 517 yards) and never during a professional tournament. (Source: Wikipedia)


Great work on the Trivia!

What is a Perfect Round?

Perfect Round is a term used to define a round of eighteen holes of golf where all holes were played at one under par (birdie on every hole) resulting in a score of 54 on a par 72 course, 53 on a par 71 course, 52 on a par 70 course, and 55 on a par 73 course.




But I think some people have got other definitions for Perfect Round. Very Happy
