Golfer Literally Catches Course On Fire

One of the D.E.Bs, Profit Prophet, sent this unique sports story to me.  A golfer out in Irvine, Cali inadvertantly set 25 acres of brush a blaze on the Shady Canyon Golf Course.  Supposedly, while hitting a shot out of the rough he hit something that caused a spark.  With the dry conditions on the course the spark immediately set the rough around him on fire and eventually spread over 25 acres.  It took 150 firefighters to put the blaze out.

That’s a hell of a burden to put on the tax payers out there for having a sh*tty golf game.  This dude must have been burning under all of the pressure.  Ba da ba da ding, lame joke!  How bad would that honestly suck though?  “Hey honey how was your round?”  “Oh you know, I played bogey golf then set the course on fire, outside of that it was your typical round.”  You’ve been wondering what could make a round of golf more exciting…
