Yesterday we had some extreme weather conditions with massive rain and hail that was bad enough that I had to pull my car over and park under a tree to keep my car from getting dented.

About a five minute drive from where I’m sitting right now is a 27 hole course designed by Johnny Miller called Stonebridge. The bad weather hit them too. A bolt of lightning hit a flagstick at the course, frying the flag and burning a crazy scorched pattern into the putting green.  See photos below, courtesy of Stonebridge.

Now think for just a second the next time you consider playing golf when you see lighting. That 5-iron is a lightning rod.
