Geoff - I loved this story. Mostly because they talked about HAY.

I didn't see it, but on a religious note, several days ago i Google Earthed around and found the church in the distance with the 2 spires grabbing air, obviously on a hill. I don't have the coordinates, but it is 3-4 miles away from the course due east or so.

Amish are an untapped group to help grow the game...

Inspirational! I wish we had an Amish community in my part of England who could make furniture as good as that.

When Jesus comes back, he'll play golf. I just know it. At most of the nicer clubs, he won't be allowed to play in the toga thing he wears, but he'll grow the game for us ... whatever that means. I can't wait.

S&F - Jesus is Jewish, he can probably get in most clubs today, but at some clubs it wil require a miracle, which I assure you he is capable.

PABoy,

I know! And I'll feel a little suspicious if he drops a bunch of hole-in-ones in his first few days of scraping it around ... or is it holes-in-one. My, God ... I'm already so excited I can't remember all these dang grammar rules. Maybe he'll bring back Ol' Tom Morris or whoever to be the head pro of the world. That would be super cool! Stay alert! Shalom!

Great story and nice partnership they have. The woodwork appears to be of great quality.
