Alert To Desert Golfers: Watch Those Jumping Cholla

Since the PGA Tour is in the middle of its Arizona swing, a reader sent this recent shot in and taken by a friend. Moral of this might be better to just accept the ball as lost and concede the hole. Something to remember, WGC Match Play semi-finalists!

Looks serious...

Tough pin placements.

WTF... and the paramedics look as perplexed at this as I am!

What a prick.

Perhaps that guy was just a plant for this photo?

I played TPC Scottsdale a year ago & walked into the locker room to see a guy on his belly with paramedics attending to him- he'd fallen backwards into a cactus trying to hit a shot (against his caddy's recommendation) and was going into shock. His back was a pin cushion, and I admit I'm not a cacti expert but the medics said it was the needles with some kind of wicked combo-point burr/needle thing. Lesson learned, just another excuse to avoid the desert!

Tribbles with attitutude?
Please excuse me ... I don't normally stutteter!
Anyway ... why's the geezer on the right painted the top of his head white?
"How long d'ya think it'll be before they turn into moths and fly away?" he said, hopefully.

I am SO releived to know that I am not the only one who had the exact thought, "Tribbles, with attitude." I think this is what happens when young Tribbles get mixed up with the Crips and the Bloods.

My other thought was this; "This photo may document one of the very few acceptable reasons to allow cellphones on a golf course."

Clearly, part of Tiger's therapy is to serve as an Arizona paramedic, helping unsuspecting golfers who find themselves in prickly situations.

TXQ ... that was perfect!

Still less painful than watching CBS' coverage.

This looks very serious and painful. I don't think you people should be so quick to needle.

That's my only point and I'm sticking to it. Pardon me while I dart out of here.

Better than a rattlesnake bite.

If only it were pronounced like it's spelled, we'd have the proverbial Chollaback Boy.

Alas, darned Spanish!

this would have never happened if he'd been walking
