I can’t figure out if this is funny or just sad and demented.

The General, Eagle Ridge, Galena Illinois, Eleventh Hole

The General-2647

This is the eleventh hole at The General, Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa’s premier golf course. This part three requires a 150 - 160 yard shot over a ravine.
Interestingly, there are two huge fans on the back side of the green, keeping the grass from being burned. I’ve seen that in just one other place: a Whiskey Ridge in Ijamsville, Maryland.

    Callaway Big Bertha Alpha Driver Now $100 Off

    Callaway Men’s Big Bertha Alpha Driver

    The price has fallen by $100 at most outlets for the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha Driver.

    The Alpha might be the most adjustable club ever. It has an adjustable hosel that allows you to increase or decrease the loft, while at the same time adding a draw or neutral bias. Movable screw weights can be used to further the bias.

    But lots of clubs do that. Where the Alpha is different is in the “Gravity Core.” This adjustment lets a player change the club from a low-spin to mid-spin launch.

    That’s what I need—a driver that somehow gets my spin rate down. High spin is killing me.
