#Golfchat Shoots its Age

golfchat_shoots_age

This week on #Golfchat we pay tribute to @ShootingYourAge for throwing a tantrum and all the clubs out of his crib when we forgot to ask his question last week. In an act of deep contrition, his question leads off today.

In other questions, we talk about the PGA’s influence over golf course setups, we ask what’s the next best prize after the green jacket, what’s a scary water carry, and ask what’s the GMOAT.
