Golf, Politics and a Stroke

There will no longer be a penalty stroke for hitting a ball into the water or out of bounds.

This post took balls.

Golf balls specifically.

When watching some of the recent political and criminal investigations turn into little more than interpretive dance, one starts to wonder about any integrity in today’s political theater.

But then I ran into this….

News Release

“The USGA, the R&A (The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews), the PGA, after a private meeting with Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch on a plane somewhere have recommended that your opponent must prove that you intended to hit the ball into these hazards in order for there to be a penalty.

“Gross negligence, carelessness or ignorance is not intent.

“No intent-no penalty stroke.”

That sure balances things out.

By the way, when I am not finding absurdity in today’s culture, I am helping brands defy gravity and rise above the noise.
