Have you ever wanted to hit a golf ball from one continent to another? Yeah, neither have I. But now that Tiger Woods has attempted it I am in the middle of making plans to figure out how to get to the closest continental border to tee it up.
Okay, I really am not. I don’t exactly have the resources Tiger Woods does, so the closest I will ever get is hitting a golf ball from one country to another. The Mexican border is a couple hours away from San Antonio here and I can drop a golf ball down in the sand and hit a sand wedge over the Rio Grande River. (I’ll be sure to also provide video of my accomplishment once I get it done.)
Either way, Tiger Woods is in Turkey getting paid $3 million to play in the Turkish Open this week. To add some excitement to the tournament the promoters shut down traffic today so he can tee it up and hit golf balls down the Bosphorus Bridge where I guess it connects Europe to Asia. It’s a pretty lame video and a even more lamer attempt at publicity. But you know Tiger he loves getting paid and he’ll do anything to get paid.
