Can you believe the ball I found in the swamp at my home course?

US OPEN golf ballSo I’m searching in the reeds of the swamp at my home course. With the state of my game lately I’ve been doing this quite a bit. I’m looking for my damn ProV1 in one of the hundreds of hazards at my home course in Sandy, Utah. This is Sandy, Utah OK?

I find a ProV1 but unfortunately it isn’t mine. I can see some kind of logo on the thing but it is covered with mud. After I clean the mud off, I’m shocked to find a 2009 US OPEN Bethpage Black logo ball. What bonehead is knocking these collector’s items in the hazards in Sandy freakin’ Utah?

This one went right to my ball rack.

    Oh man, I haven’t been playing much golf but purely as a spoof, I faked up a some Bethpage Black logo’d Pro V1’s — got a sleeve fedex’d and then threw two in my briefcase and put one in my prized *ball rack*

    anyway I was passing my other two around town a bit but no one was impressed. Then boom – I meet some *cowgirl* from Utah (who was so beautiful that she could have been a waitress!)

    Long story short – Next thing I know I’m standing on the first tee at some Utah golf course – when we look to our seven o’clock – and about a wedge away from the first tee – there is this house with a banner that says something like blah blah world headquarters – well; the front door was wide open and we could see right in and what she says must have been the ugliest carpet ever – Like anyone could ever know that… so, I make a crack about how that house must be just another one of the *hundreds of hazards* at this golf course…

    Anyway, I tee up one my slick “2009 USOPEN BB” PROV1’s to impress her and I pure a drive right down the middle but dang utah fairways – when I eventually get to it – I’ve got mud all over my ball. Turns out she’s making me play it *as it LIES* and I end up clunking it into some dang swamp – holy cow – that thing was surrounded by reeds no chance of finding my ball so I re-hit … I ended up two putting for an 8 on that first hole – welcome to Sandy Utah!
